Leaders from across West Virginia met in Charleston on Monday to get a progress report on the "Change the Future West Virginia" program.
The plan was funded by a federal grant in 2010 to implement changes to make healthy living easier for residents. The plan includes promoting and expanding farmers markets and creating health food aisles in grocery stores.
"We wanted to go out and, and really create healthier environments so people could have access to healthier foods and physical activity," said John Yauch, the program manager for "Change the Future WV."
Monday's session at the Charleston Marriott was the final in a series of five regional learning events.
