Recreate Health 

The "Recreate Health Coalition" is collaboration to address the leading causes of preventable death and disability through their common risk factors of diet, physical activity, and tobacco use.  By developing policies and actions to support healthier food and activity in our environments, we will also see benefits in mental health, social support, and social cohesion. An equity frame can mobilize stakeholders to make these environments more accessible to all.
