Kentucky receives big bucks to help in the battle against childhood obesity.
Governor Fletcher’s statewide initiative, Get Healthy Kentucky, will receive $100,000 towards the effort.
The state’s program is only one of ten in the nation receiving the grant. The money will go toward the development of strategies, laws and the analysis of existing programs.
Get Healthy Kentucky is a wellness initiative that incorporates physical activity, nutrition and tobacco prevention components.
