Helping Missourians live longer and healthier lives is the goal of the Missouri Council for Activity and Nutrition (MOCAN), a group of organizations that impact nutrition and physical activity environments from throughout the state that are working to reduce obesity in Missouri. MOCAN is administered by the University of Missouri Human Environmental Sciences Extension. Partner organizations have come together to prevent and reduce obesity, which should also reduce the incidence of chronic diseases, which cause a majority of deaths in Missouri.
MOCAN members are using a public awareness campaign urging Missourians to "Live Like Your Life Depends On It." The campaign includes promotional posters and flyers tailored to different regions of Missouri. The campaign is based on the work of the Live Well Alliance, which is no longer in existence.
