Disclaimer: Members of the Illinois Alliance to Prevent Obesity (IAPO) are those that have endorsed the eight objectives listed in the IAPO Roadmap. However, IAPO’s long-term goals constitute a consensus agenda. The establishment of this consensus agenda did not require unanimity among our member organizations. Public agencies and other members of IAPO do not necessarily individually endorse all of the long-term goals.
