To address obesity in children and families, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established a new Prevention Center for Healthy Weight, which will launch the Healthy Weight Collaborative. The center is supported by the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act.
As part of the collaborative, HRSA is interested in catalyzing partnerships with foundations. On this Webinar, funders learned about the wide variety of related opportunities available, from identifying promising practices, to convening, to funding.
