CCARE Eat Move Live!

The Eat, Move, Live! program (EML) is a community-based nutrition and physical activity program for obesity and cancer risk reduction. CCARE engages with the community in a symbiotic relationship to co-educate and exchange knowledge and wisdom. CCARE and the community infuse the best scientific practice with socioecologic and cultural relevance to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities among diverse and medically underserved communities. CCARE collaborates with 106 community partners to engage the community covering 315 zip codes, and implemented 214 health education programs, extending City of Hope’s reach to over 20,000 households. The healthy lifestyle and chronic disease risk reduction intervention was conducted with 228 adults and 125 children with a documented positive effect on eating and physical activity knowledge, awareness and behaviors.
