COMPREHENSIVE, BUT VERY SIMPLE AT THE SAME TIME.
THERE ARE FOUR MAIN GOALS, AND THEY ARE KIND OF BROAD AND THEY
COVER ALL THE TOPIC AREAS. SO THE FIRST ONE IS TO TRY TO
CHANGE THE POLICIES AND ENVIRONMENTS IN NORTH CAROLINA
THAT SUPPORT PEOPLE BEING HEALTHY WHEREVER THEY LIVE,
LEARN, WORK, PLAY OR PRAY. THEN THE SECOND ONE IS THAT WE REALLY
WANT TO TRY AND MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T HAVE AN INCREASE IN
OBESITY RATES. SO WE'RE WORKING TOWARDS PEOPLE MAINTAINING OR
GETTING BACK TO A HEALTHY WEIGHT. AND THEN WE KIND OF MOVE INTO

PERSONAL BEHAVIOR, WHERE WE REALLY TRY TO TARGET HEALTHY
EATING AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. THOSE ARE THE FOUR MAIN GOALS IN
OUR STATE PLAN.
