Choosing Healthy & Active Lifestyles for Kids (CHALK) is New York Presbyterian’s (NYP) obesity prevention program in collaboration with Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and the community of Northern Manhattan. The program developed out of a need to serve the high risk, predominantly Latino community of Washington Heights/Inwood. The goal of CHALK is to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity in Northern Manhattan by creating an environment in which healthy lifestyles are integral to the lives of all children and their families. CHALK’s areas of focus are community organizations and programs, early childhood centers, public schools, faith-based organizations, and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s outpatient pediatric practices.
