Santa Rosa Press Democrat

A Sonoma County coalition that promotes healthy eating and physical activity has received a $1 million grant from Kaiser Permanente to continue tackling obesity in south Santa Rosa.

The Community Activity and Nutrition Coalition of Sonoma County, or CAN-C, will use the funds for the next phase of its work in Santa Rosa’s Kawana Springs and Roseland neighborhoods — areas with high rates of obesity among adults and young people.
