Child care providers are critical partners in child care-based health promotion, but personal struggles with obesity and poor health can be barriers to the success of health promotion initiatives in child care.

The Go NAPSACC CARES project is a R01 NIH grant funded multi-level project seeking to determine if improving the health of child care providers leads to meaningful improvement in the health of the child care environments and the children in its care.
