CPPW in Action
Communities can produce broad, lasting health outcomes by making healthier choices available to and practical for their residents through environmental change. From making fresh fruits and vegetables accessible and affordable through farmer's markets, to offering tobacco education and smoking–cessation resources, the availability of healthier choices can affect the behaviors and practices of many people simultaneously. As a result, positive environmental changes can help to reduce the burden of chronic diseases and other health problems related to obesity and tobacco use.
