In 2017, the Stronger Together Alliance brought together a collaboration of local community organizations to create lasting solutions to pressing health concerns in the community. The alliance identified youth obesity as a primary health concern in our community.
In response, the alliance piloted the CHOOSE H20 Initiative in partnership with the Attleboro Public Schools. The goal was to make water the drink of choice in an effort to reduce sugar sweetened drinks with our youth.
By providing new water filling stations in the schools, educational sessions, and branded water bottles, the CHOOSE H20 initiative proved that access and education helped young people change their behaviors and make healthier choices.
