Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD)

October 30, 2014


In 2010, SNHD received a Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) grant to address obesity in Southern Nevada. By working with community partners to facilitate policy, systems and environmental changes, one of project objectives was to work with local agencies to develop and implement physical activity and nutrition policies for their after-school programs. Today, over 7,000 children are exposed daily to CATCH Kids Club physical activity and nutrition lessons in the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson.All site policies reference CATCH Kids Club as a curriculum that will continue to be integrated into their ongoing programs.
