1 Statewide Physical Activity and Nutrition Plan: 2007 - 2012 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Obesity and chronic diseases – often the result of physical inactivity and unhealthy eating – are leading public health concerns throughout the United States. Obesity is a risk factor in several health conditions that impair and shorten the lives of thousands of Oregonians annually, including heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, certain cancers, hypertension, osteoarthritis and asthma. In Oregon, as throughout the nation, obesity rates have reached troubling proportions. Nearly two-thirds of Oregon adults are overweight or obese and nearly one of every four teen-agers is overweight or at risk of becoming overweight. Beyond the problems obesity currently presents in the lives of young people today, excess weight foreshadows potentially even greater health problems for the next generation of adults. This disturbing trend does not have to continue. Leaders and decision-makers throughout the state are beginning to recognize the significant impact of environments and public policies that can support individuals in making positive changes. Toward that end, the Healthy Active Oregon Statewide Physical Activity and Nutrition Plan is a roadmap for creating environments and policies that support daily physical activity and access to healthy foods for all Oregonians, with the ultimate goal of reducing chronic disease. These changes can also prompt positive improvements in the lives of Oregon’s growing oldest population group. Among older adults, increased physical activity and more healthful diets can reduce falls and improve brain health.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
