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

Located in Clark County, Nevada the project is managed by the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) Chronic Disease Prevention and Tobacco Control Programs. SNHD’s Chronic disease Prevention team is working with community partners and its leadership team to implement specific policy and environmental change strategies including establishing physical activity and healthy eating policies in child care centers and after-school programs, expanding the Safe Routes to Schools programs and promotion of healthy versus less healthy foods in worksites, restaurants, convenience stores and community locations. These changes are intended to create a supportive environment and provide social support to residents in their efforts to be physically active and eat healthy. Program interventions and strategies will impact all age groups in multiple sectors of the community.

SNHD’s Tobacco Control Team will work to eliminate tobacco industry sponsorships and implement restrictions related to minors' possessing, using, and purchasing cigarettes. These changes are intended to support residents in making choices to abstain from using tobacco products and to limit exposure to secondhand smoke. The program's interventions and strategies will impact all age groups in multiple sectors (i.e., schools, worksites, places of faith, communities). Practice- and evidence-based strategies will include social support in the schools and communities to reinforce the behaviors being promoted by the proposed policy and environmental changes.
