    Obesity prevention is clearly an issue in which public health has a vital role. State public health agencies have important roles in obesity prevention; they provide leadership, coordination among state level entities, bridging between local and national efforts, technical and financial assistance, dissemination of what works via the provision of best practices resources, surveillance and evaluation assistance. While each state will address obesity prevention differently, each uses public health principles as an overarching framework for developing effective obesity prevention strategies.
