Shape Up Under 5

Shape Up Under 5 (SUU5) is a pilot obesity prevention intervention in Somerville, MA as part of the COMPACT study, a 5-year NIH grant that brings together researchers from across the world to apply the principles of systems science to community-based childhood obesity preventions. The project united the work of early childhood advocates from different sectors (the ‘SUU5 Committee’) to create and promote a common set of evidence-based messages on healthy growth.
