PFCD Launches New Promising Practices Guide and Web Site

The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease (PFCD) recently released a new resource called Keeping America Healthy: A Guide To Successful Programs, which highlights successful health and wellness programs in schools, communities, workplaces, and within the health system, and identifies the essential elements that these programs share. Within the document you'll find nearly 150 programs featured as, Programs that Work, Programs to Watch, or Programs with Promise. In addition to the extensive, hard-copy document, a Web site has been launched - - on which you can search the database of programs by state, health target and setting; submit additional programs to be considered for inclusion on the site; and download the entire guide and its accompanying materials.
