Preventing Obesity by Design Expands to South Carolina and Texas

POD South Carolina was launched in 2015 in partnership with the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control. Now in the second year, the original five demonstration sites in Florence, SC were expanded in 2016 to include five additional sites in Spartanburg County. 

In Texas, NLI is working with the Texas State Department of Health to create an early childhood health promortion strategy through professional development opportunities and a policy review to support the creation of naturalized outdoor environments for young children in Texas.
