Groups that are already concerned about obesity can be linked together. This can generate plans of action and may lead to small-scale interventions. At the same time, awareness needs to be raised among other potential partners, especially federal, state, and local government agencies. As a partnership is built, funding opportunities, from public and private entities, should increase. The ultimate need is a public health campaign to combat an important public health problem.
