Choose Health LA

Choose Health LA is a local initiative of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to prevent and control chronic disease in Los Angeles County.

Community Transformation Grant

Choose Health LA is working with community partners to develop innovative strategies aimed at reducing youth access to tobacco products and exposure to secondhand smoke; improving nutrition and opportunities for physical activity; and increasing access to high quality, clinical preventive services. These efforts are part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Community Transformation Grants (CTG) program. Learn more here.

Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Initiative

The four-year Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Initiative is bringing together a broad range of partners to implement community-based public education, skills-building and environmental changes that promote physical activity and healthy eating. The grant, funded by First 5 LA, targets the nearly one million LA County children 0-5 years of age and their families, and includes three focus areas: Choose Health LA Kids, reducing obesity in child care settings and managing obesity in moms.
