Stimulus] will be used to increase physical activity, improve nutrition, decrease obesity, and decrease smoking in U.S. communities.” On September 17, 2009, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “announced a funding opportunity for communities and tribes to apply for $373 million in cooperative agreements for the comprehensive public health initiative, Communities Putting Prevention to Work, to be led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”
– The Miami funds are part of $373 million “being awarded to 44 communities around the country to support public health efforts to reduce obesity and smoking, increase physical activity and improve nutrition.”
– Award Recipient: Miami-Dade County Health Department was awarded a grant in the amount of 14.7 million dollars for a prevention program in Miami-Dade County on March 19, 2010.

Promulgating lofty goals to hide their true agenda for control
– Their goal: “With this funding, our community will be able to expand access to fresh fruits and vegetables through community gardens and farms to institutions, promote healthy options in vending machines, promote breastfeeding, invest in activities that promote physical activity, incorporate standards in community planning designs that encourage physical activity, and enhance the safe routes to school and park programs,” said Lillian Rivera, administrator of the Miami-Dade County Health Department, in a news release.”

Gov’t. to bombard Miami residents with anti-obesity ads and to restrict ads and products they don’t like. They will also influence behavior via taxes and high prices.
As a condition for these “Stimulus” funds, local governments will have to use the intervention model called MAPPS (Media, Access, Point of decision information, Price, and Social support) to “influence behaviors by changing community environments:”
“We are changing the paradigm to make the healthy choice the default choice,” said Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
They will target everyone. “[W]e do great interventions so we can make a difference in people’s lives,” said Lillian Rivera, administrator of the Miami-Dade County Health Department.
But they are missing an important point: Americans don’t want more government intervention into their lives!
