New Resource--Healthy Weights: Halton Takes Action Newsletter, Regional Municipality of Halton Health Department

We would like to share with you the inaugural newsletter for Healthy Weights: Halton Takes Action. Traditional attempts to reduce obesity rates focus on individual lifestyle factors. Recent reports recommend focusing on developing supportive physical environments, inclusive communities and social supports. The Healthy Weights: Halton Takes Action initiative based on the socio-ecological model will help to address the rising rates of childhood obesity in Halton.

Please feel free to share this with your colleagues and stakeholders: http://www.halton.ca/health/Resources/resource.cfm?ID=570.

We look forward to your comments and suggestions; please email us at takeaction@halton.ca.
