Health Crisis in Carolina: Real Families, Real Struggles, Real Solutions

Health Crisis in Carolina: Real Families, Real Struggles, Real Solutions is a reality-style documentary program that follows three families from across North Carolina. The program was created as an educational series focusing on seven key evidence-based individual health behaviors to reduce obesity.

The project was funded with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Community Putting Prevention to Work in 2010 via an award to the Physical Activity and Nutrition Branch in the North Carolina Division of Public Health.

The cast includes three families from three diverse backgrounds: an African-American family from Wilmington where the father is a pastor; a mixed race family from Fayetteville and a Caucasian family from Charlotte.

Even though the behaviors are individual in nature, the program illustrates how policies and the environment can inhibit or facilitate these behaviors whole highlighting real strategies for eating smart and moving more.
