National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month: Taking Action
Childhood obesity affects 1 in 5 children in the US, including South Asian children. At SAPHA, we're committed to addressing this issue. Here's what you need to know:
Complexity of Obesity: Many factors contribute to obesity, including behavior, genetics, and social determinants of health like neighborhood design and access to healthy food and physical activity.
Prevention is Possible: We can make a difference during National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month by raising awareness and working together as communities, health professionals, and families.
Resources for Action: Visit healthfinder.gov for toolkits that provide resources for schools, healthcare providers, and health departments to address childhood obesity.
