Our Choice - Nuestra Opcion Research Project
The Imperial County Public Health Department is participating in a four-year Childhood Obesity Demonstration Project in partnership with Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo, Inc., and San Diego State University. This research study, funded by the Centers Disease Control and Prevention, has an overarching goal to create supportive environments through policy and system changes that develop nutrition and physical activity behaviors to improve health outcomes of children. Interventions have a specific focus on healthy eating, water consumption, physical activity and sleep, and are promoted within the community clinic, school, child care, restaurant, and community recreation sectors.
