Officially started in 2006, Partners for a Healthy Nevada (PHN) is Southern Nevada’s Obesity Prevention Coalition. Originally formed to help ensure non-duplication of efforts, the coalition now offers networking, information sharing, and advocacy opportunities for members as well as a chance to support community projects and activities that encourage physical activity and healthy eating.

Membership is free and open to any organization or individual that has an interest in obesity prevention. General meetings are held quarterly.

Vision
