StrongWomen Across America

In September 2011 Dr. Nelson and her team launched a major cross-country tour with the goal of improving nutrition and physical activity across the nation. The tour aimed to mobilize a grass roots ‘social network’ movement to improve the food and physical activity environment within communities across the country.  Dr. Nelson’s ten-week driving tour was designed to accelerate the pace of change in the physical activity and food environment.  During the trip she worked closely with existing StrongWomen ambassadors in eight states to establish Change Clubs—groups of women who come together to target action steps, large and small, to change the food and physical activity environment in their own communities.
