Missouri Council for Activity
& Nutrition (MoCAN)
MoCAN works to implement Missouri’s Nutrition and Physical Activity Plan. Currently meetings are held 2-3 times per year to implement work plans to achieve the plan’s objectives, track outcomes and evaluate which efforts are most effective.
The following MoCAN Work Groups are currently in place:
Missouri Foundation for Health — Healthy and Active Communities
The Healthy and Active Communities Initiative (H&AC) targets community-based organizations with the specific objective of reaching populations who are at increased risk of developing obesity, such as women and children, racial and ethnic groups, and low-income individuals or families.
Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas
HCF supports local community partnerships that will increase opportunities for physical activity and improve access to affordable healthy foods for children and families through integrated changes in policies, norms, practices, social supports and the physical environment.
