Bronx REACH CHAMPS

Bronx REACH CHAMPS

Good nutrition and physical activity are powerful tools that foster good health, academic success, and help improve the quality of life at all ages. Bronx REACH CHAMPS, led by BCHN in collaboration with its partners, aims to reduce obesity and improve the overall health and wellness of the Bronx's culturally and ethnically diverse population.

REACH CHAMPS plans to implement a number of nutrition and physical activity interventions that have shown great promise in changing policies, systems and environments that support access to affordable fresh fruits and vegetables and options for active living.

REACH CHAMPS hopes to reverse the borough's overall health standing, currently ranked last--the sixth year in a row--out of 62 New York State counties, according to a yearly Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and University of Wisconsin study.

The Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
