Obesity Prevention and Control Program


Statewide Efforts to Prevent Cardiovascular Disease


Policies, Programs, and Environmental Supports for Physical Activity and Risk Reduction (November 2004)


The purpose of this project was to create an inventory of current physical activity-related policies, sustainable programs, and accessible environmental supports that would help guide future activity promotion efforts in Alaska. With this information, agencies around the state can begin to address inactivity and hopefully decrease rates of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and many other unhealthy conditions.
