  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) supports efforts nationwide to reduce the risk factors associated with childhood and adult obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke through its State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (State Public Health Actions) program. Through a federal grant, all 50 states and the District of Columbia receive funds to help prevent these chronic diseases. This program focuses on healthy environments in workplaces, schools, early childhood education facilities, and the community. It also focuses on working through health systems and communities to reduce complications from multiple chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The goal is to make healthy living easier for all Americans. Grantees of the State Public Health Actions program serve on the frontlines of public health prevention efforts, exploring and testing new and innovative approaches that can provide critical insight and lessons learned to others. The goal of this document is to summarize and share information on current approaches to help other grantees working in these same areas. This document highlights efforts by five state health departments to increase access to healthy foods through farmers’ markets.
