Welcome to the Georgia High Obesity Program (G-HOP)

The Georgia High Obesity Program (G-HOP) is a project funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and is implemented by the University of Georgia. The current G-HOP funding cycle runs from 2023 to 2028 and focuses on implementing Nutrition and Physical Activity strategies in ten Georgia counties with an adult obesity prevalence of 40% or higher. In its first year, G-HOP is working to increase community access to healthy foods and physical activity in Clay, Dooly, Stewart, and Rockdale Counties. UGA Extension, the College of Public Health, the College of Environment + Design, and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences are working collaboratively with the CDC and other partners to make Georgia counties healthier for living, working, and playing.
