COPE Coalition (Childhood Obesity Prevention Education) - In April 2010,
Florida A&M University (FAMU) and Florida Family Network, Inc. (FFN), in partnership with the Florida State University Center for Better Health and Life in Underserved Populations and the Greater Frenchtown Revitalization Council, initiated plans for the development of a comprehensive coalition of public and private sector agencies, organizations, institutions, and individuals, in our capital city, to address childhood overweight and obesity. In September 2010, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Foundation supported and funded the formation of the Tallahassee Hope Thru Childhood Obesity Prevention Education (COPE) Coalition. The vision of the Tallahassee COPE Coalition is Healthy Children! Healthy Future! Healthy Tallahassee! and the mission is to develop and implement a plan of action to decrease childhood obesity in Tallahassee. Go to www.tallycope.org for more information.
