CDC is supporting 50 communities across the nation—including urban, suburban, rural, and tribal areas—to tackle obesity, tobacco use (including exposure), or both. More than 50 million people—or one in six Americans—live in a community that will benefit from this initiative.
The following map represents the breadth of CPPW's community–based initiative. Click on one of the 50 communities listed below to learn more about what its members are doing at the local level.
