Nutrition Oregon Campaign

Oregon is facing a health crisis with increasing rates of obesity, uncontrolled blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. If we do not intervene to reverse this epidemic of decreasing health, the impact will be devastating to communities and the Oregon food in heart disheseconomy.

The Moore Institute is developing a plan for a statewide nutrition education campaign based on the tenets of DOHaD that is targeted toward community leaders. During the planning phase, we are working with communities across the state to learn about their unique barriers to nutrition and the great work we know is already underway.

This project is bigger than any one group or community. Join us to end chronic disease where it starts and create a healthier Oregon for all.

For more information check out this summary of the campaign.

Community Listening Sessions

We held listening sessions around the state for groups to learn more about the campaign and share their perspective on nutrition issues in their local communities.
