The Network for a Healthy California - Latino Campaign is a public health initiative led by the California Department of Health Services. Latino Campaign's mission is to empower low-income Latino adults and their families to consume 5 to 9 servings of fruit and vegetables and engage in at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. The Campaign also works with communities throughout California to create environments where these behaviors are socially supported and accessible.

The Network for a Healthy California - Latino Campaign and physical activity objectives are designed to reduce the risks of chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. In addition, each region has a Regional Advisory Council that provides input and direction to the Campaign on its strategies and methods for reaching Latino adults. The Advisory Council is a membership of concerned residents, community leaders, educators, ministers, nurses, doctors, and advocates. Stay tuned for regional efforts and information on ways you can become a part of the Regional Advisory Council.
