Be Our Voice
Arkansas received one of eight grants awarded to organizations fighting childhood obesity.
The National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare Quality (NICHQ) provided ArCOP with a $15,000 grant in conjunction with it’s Be Our Voice program. Be Our Voice is part of a $3.2 million grant awarded to NICHQ from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and was developed by NICHQ in cooperation with the American Academy of Pediatrics, the California Medical Association Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The goal of Be Our Voice is to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic trend across the nation by training, supporting and providing technical assistance to healthcare professionals in becoming advocates for change within their communities.
