Hispanic obesity prevention and education initiatives

The Florida Department of Health Obesity Prevention Program is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for Hispanic obesity prevention and education initiatives.

This funding opportunity is part of the comprehensive Hispanic Obesity Prevention and Education (HOPE) program designed to promote physical activity and healthy nutrition among Hispanic individuals in the state of Florida.
In 2006, the Florida legislature allocated non-recurring general revenue funds for a Hispanic Obesity Prevention Education (HOPE) program. Components of this program include a media campaign, web site, and a web-based service to evaluate current physical activity and dietary habits and offer a personalized plan for improvement. The funding opportunity discussed in the attached pdf file will be the community support for this comprehensive program.

DrTango Inc, which was selected by the Florida Department of Health to manage the HOPE program, will be your main point of contact. For questions or comments please contact:

Catalina Rodriguez or call (305) 377-9167. We hope that you will consider applying for these funds or forwarding on this opportunity to other interested individuals.
