- Langley Park Community Center will offer vital resources that will facilitate the success of this intervention (Healthy Montgomery, 2014).
- Healthy Montgomery is one of the community partners in Montgomery County that aims to prevent obesity in the communities; especially at risk groups. Six priority areas for improvement of the health of communities by this partner include behavioral health, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular health, maternal and infant health, and cancers (Healthy Montgomery, 2014). These priority areas match the aim of the intervention plan.
