Community Wellness: Comprehensive City-School Strategies to Reduce Childhood Obesity

This report describes the most noteworthy initiatives that six cities have launched to promote health and wellness in their communities, including, but not limited to, the efforts undertaken by teams of municipal and school district officials as part of the National League of Cities and the American Association of School Administrators project. This project created new opportunities for municipal and school leadership to open a dialogue on how to build upon their wellness programs and policies. In each case, mayors and superintendents played critical roles in forming and sustainabing local collaborations among diverse stakeholders.
