Getting started

Join us September 25, 2019

In March of 2018, members from Oregon’s public health community met to explore the concept of and need for a statewide, multi-sector obesity prevention coalition. The outcome of the meeting was clear: stakeholders agreed that a strong statewide coalition is necessary to our overarching goal of preventing weight-related chronic conditions. Please join us to launch our coalition at our Inaugural Summit on September 25, 2019 in Wilsonville, Oregon. Please follow the link below to register for this free event. We need your input!

We look forward to working with a diverse community of people and organizations invested in our mission and who share our vision.

Our Vision

By 2029, all Oregonians will enjoy healthier lives supported by equity-driven policies and significant statewide investment to improve environments and remove systemic barriers to healthy weight.


 
 

Our Guiding Principles

Healthy Active Oregon adheres to the following guiding principles in all aspects of its work: 

  1. A strong effective coalition must center relationships among social identities and lived experience (i.e., race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, immigration status, sexual orientation, age, and disability status, etc.) in its organizational- and leadership-building approach.  

  2. Obesity is not the result of an individual’s personal failure. It is a function of economic, environmental, political, and racial inequalities and must be addressed at a systemic level. Addressing these root causes is essential to reducing health disparities. 

  3. Weight-related chronic disease impacts Oregonians of all backgrounds across the lifespan. Slowing the increase of obesity to improve health outcomes will require complex, multifaceted, multisector solutions. 

  4. Prioritizing policy, systems, and environmental approaches with the most potential for sustainable, population-level impact while encouraging implementation of evidence-based programs is critical to transforming current obesity trends in Oregon.
