Maine is the 29th most obese state in the country, but also has the highest rates of obesity in New England. CD&M joined forces with the Maine CDC, Healthy Portland and Healthy Lakes on the Community Putting Prevention to Work Grant. We helped create educational campaigns to reduce obesity, increase physical activity and improve nutrition. The efforts helped increase positive policy and environmental change in each community within the school setting.
PSAs were created to remind bicyclists and drivers about the importance of sharing the road. The National CDC took notice and asked to make these spots available for use in their Media Resource Center.
