Project Description

St. Jude Medical Center

The North Orange County Move More Eat Healthy Initiative focuses on reducing the obesity rate in North Orange County. St. Jude Medical Center partnered with cities, school districts, community collaboratives, and residents to implement policy, system, and environmental changes that make the healthy choice the easy choice in low income neighborhoods. School districts implemented physical activity and nutrition programs. City governments increased access to physical activity and nutrition, including installing fitness equipment in low-income neighborhood parks and creating community gardens. In this first year of the multi-year campaign, over 20,000 low-income residents were impacted.
