HealthierUS Initiative

A White House initiative with the goal of helping Americans lead longer, better, and healthier lives by promoting physical activity, preventive screenings, balanced nutrition and healthy choices. Steps to a HealthierUS was established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to advance the larger initiative. It targets public education and community-based grants to reduce the burden of diabetes, overweight, obesity, and asthma, and to address three related risk factors-physical inactivity, poor nutrition, and tobacco use.
