Magnet Center Sites

Activities to encourage heart-healthy eating and physical activity are described for each magnet center site, according to the 5 P's of Hearts N' Parks: People, Programs and Practices, Public Visibility, Partnering, and Performance Indicators. As in 2002, almost all indicators of heart-healthy eating and physical activity significantly improved for participants in 2003. In addition, the number of programs that measured performance increased to 142. Some limitations in collecting performance indicators from community participants included high attrition rates and data entry issues. For additional information, see the Report of 2003 Magnet Center Performance Data.
