Alliance Obesity Committee Meeting
Monday, August 31; 1:30 – 3:30 pm
The NC Alliance for Health Obesity Committee will hold a meeting at the American Heart Association on Monday, August 31, from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.
This meeting will include a brief wrap-up of the outcomes from the 2015 legislative session (if session has adjourned!), with a focus on our healthy food access work, as well as a detailed updated on the progress of NCAH’s Voices for Healthy Kids grant activities. There have been many developments with the grant and many new plans for the fall that we are excited to share with members and partners. We will also discuss NCAH’s potential obesity policy priorities for the coming 2016 short session. We encourage all of our obesity-focused partners to attend and contribute to the conversation!
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Morgan Wittman Gramann.
