Georgia Shape’s approach to improving child health and wellness is rooted in research. Research shows a strong connection between physical fitness, good nutrition, and a child’s ability to learn. Through extensive collaborations and partnerships, Georgia Shape implements and promotes evidence-based programs that empower parents, caregivers, youth, and healthcare providers to address childhood obesity.
To highlight these efforts, Georgia Shape pursues media engagement opportunities that demonstrate Georgia’s successes and partnerships to showcase an impact on combating childhood obesity and overweight statewide. Georgia Shape regularly attends state and national conferences and conventions to share this important work and present the public health messages surrounding the efforts. Staff also travel around the state to attend health fairs, family fitness nights, and community events to distribute research and information about programs as well as fun, kid-centric Georgia Shape giveaways.
