  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funds states nationwide to reduce the risk factors associated with childhood and adult obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke through a cooperative agreement entitled State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305 State Public Health Actions). States were awarded funding under 1305 State Public Health Actions in 2013, and awards continue annually for five years.

    CDC Healthy Schools (CDC School Health Branch) directs funding and technical support to state health departments for the implementation of the school health areas of 1305 State Public Health Actions. State health departments work with state education departments and additional key partners to implement evidence-based school health strategies to improve school nutrition, physical education, physical activity, and the management of chronic health conditions. Importantly, various non-governmental organizations, including the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), also receive funding from CDC Healthy Schools to strengthen the efforts of states in these areas of school health.

    This publication highlights the achievements of states and local school districts/schools related to the implementation of the school health area of 1305 State Public Health Actions. In consultation with CDC Healthy Schools, NACDD identified a total of 15 states to feature that are diverse by regions of the country and basic and enhanced funding levels. NACDD worked with the school health lead and designated staff member(s) to develop each state success. While this publication is a compilation of the successes, each state success story was prepared to stand on its own.

    This publication was supported by the Cooperative Agreement Number 5U380T000225-4 funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the author and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC or the Department of Health and Human Services.
