The BPC's Nutrition and Physical Activity Initiative, co-chaired by former Secretaries of Health and Human Services Mike Leavitt and Donna Shalala and Secretaries Glickman and Veneman, will bring together stakeholders and policymakers to highlight important elements of the national conversation around these issues and promote existing policies, programs, and best practices that can create a foundation for collaborative action. The four priority areas of the Initiative are improving nutrition education, dismantling barriers to physical activity, accelerating access to healthy food choices, and harnessing institutional opportunities.
