MomsRisingJoin us on Friday, January 17, 2014, at 1 p.m. EST/ 10 a.m. PST for a #FoodFri Tweetchat co-hosted by Leadership for Healthy Communities and MomsRising.

It might not be obvious at first glance, but public policy decisions impact sidewalks, bike trails, playgrounds, recreation centers, school meal programs, neighborhood farmers’ markets and food marketing. State and local policymakers—from mayors to state legislators to school superintendents—play a critical role in advancing policies that help kids and adults eat healthier and be more active.

Join our conversation on Friday about the variety of ways that innovative public policies and local, state and school leaders can help reduce and prevent childhood obesity in communities across the country.
