CPPW Pinellas Overview

Like most of the nation, two thirds of Pinellas County residents are obese or overweight and the numbers continue to grow. This is a serious public health issue; obesity is now a leading cause of death and chronic disease in America.

The initiative is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Communities Putting Prevention to Work program.
