Human Interest Stories

CDC’s Communities Putting Prevention to Work Program (CPPW) provided funding to 50 communities across the United States to tackle obesity, tobacco use, or both. More than 50 million people—or one in six Americans—live in a city, town, or tribe that benefitted from this program. Each community implemented environmental changes to make healthy living easier, including improving physical activity opportunities, increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and decreasing exposure to secondhand smoke in public places. The following stories demonstrate how these innovative community health programs have made significant differences in the lives of American across the country.
