Wisconsin Governor's Council on Physical Fitness

Wisconsin Partnership for Activity and Nutrition (WI PAN). The Wisconsin Nutrition and Physical Activity Workgroup was formed in 1999 to discuss strategies that could be implemented to address the alarming increase in childhood overweight. In September 2005 the group changed their name to the Wisconsin Partnership for Activity and Nutrition to better reflect their mission. The membership has reached over 100 persons representing a diverse group of organizations and communities.

In December 2003, the membership selected an organization structure that includes six subcommittees: environmental, school-based, healthcare, families and communities, business and industry and surveillance. The partnership and its subcommittees are the main planning vehicle for the development of the Nutrition and Physical Activity state plan. As the partnership has evolved, its mission has changed as well. The draft mission is to provide state leadership for nutrition and physical activity across the lifecycle.
