Rutherford Childhood Obesity Prevention

In August 2011, the Rutherford Polk McDowell (RPM) District Health Department Health Director was asked by the McNair Foundation to facilitate a discussion about childhood obesity in Rutherford County, N.C. A group of approximately twenty community leaders and interested human service agency providers and county residents began meeting monthly in September 2011 to discuss and assess childhood obesity in Rutherford County. The group became known as the Rutherford County Healthy Children's Collaborative with their focus being childhood obesity prevention.
