What is the 65×65 Obesity Challenge?
Mississippi’s twenty community health centers launched the Mississippi Community Health Center 65×65 Obesity Challenge because they recognize obesity as an epidemic in Mississippi that contributes to the chronic health conditions resulting in decreased lifestyle mobility and increased health care costs. The health centers are taking a long-term approach to reducing weight and increasing healthy lifestyles by launching an initiative to move 65,000 Mississippians out of obesity by 2065.
