Governor Patrick Launches Mass In Motion
Over half of Massachusetts adults, and one third of middle and high school students are overweight or obese. To address this problem, Massachusetts is launching Mass In Motion to prevent overweight and obesity and to reduce chronic disease - with a particular focus on the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.
Mass In Motion features a multi-faceted approach that includes regulations to promote healthy eating and physical activity, grants to cities and towns to make wellness initiatives a priority and a new website to give Massachusetts' residents tips on how to integrate healthy eating and physical activity into their daily lives.
