------------------------------

Healthy Places is a $5.8 million project funded by a cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Communities Putting Prevention to Work initiative (CPPW).  Funding comes from the Affordable Care Act’s Prevention and Public Health Fund.  As bona fide agent of the City of Chicago and in partnership with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children (CLOCC) at Children’s Memorial Hospital leads Healthy Places.  The initiative began in September 2010 and runs through September 2012.  The overall goal of Healthy Places is to implement sustainable policy, systems, and environmental changes that address obesity in Chicago by creating healthier environments where Chicagoans live, work, learn, and play.  The Healthy Places project includes many organizations and governmental agencies across Chicago and is focused in five areas: food access; safe walking and biking; breastfeeding support; school environments; and media and public education.
