The Importance of Collaboration

Complex problems, like improving healthy lifestyles, require collaboration and a commitment to working together for sustainable solutions. While many public health and other programs have successfully worked to address obesity in Utah, the rate continues to rise. Problems such as culture, environment, inadequate funding, and limited reach have prevented widespread impact.

Now is the time to work together. Get Healthy Utah is a collaborative effort aimed at reducing obesity through improved healthy eating and active living. No one group or organization can successfully address this problem alone. It will take the work of individuals, families, communities, faith-based groups, schools, workplaces, health systems – all of us – to build a healthy Utah.
