OUR COLLECTIVE MISSION

A Distinct Identity

Our mission is to reduce and eliminate the impact of obesity in Mississippi. Our core focuses are to raise awareness and improve access to the prevention and treatment of obesity, provide evidence-based education on obesity and its treatments, advocate for policies on obesity, and raise public awareness on the effects of obesity while offering community support to reduce the effects of obesity.

 

OBESITY IN MISSISSIPPI

Behind the Scenes

Obesity is one of the main drivers of disease and disability in Mississippi, and there is widespread acceptance that more needs to be done to reduce this burden. The challenge is complex, with multiple, overlapping factors operating at many levels, from the individual to environmental to the healthcare system. Solutions must reflect this complexity as well. We need to tackle the challenge collectively.
