- Wisconsin Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity State Plan (PDF, 2.76 MB). This 2013 publication was developed around two main concepts: a systems perspective for preventing obesity, and effective, setting-specific strategies to address obesity. One strategy is to engage partners for collecting the surveillance data to monitor and report progress in improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, and reducing the prevalence of overweight and obesity.
