Get Healthy, Trim Down Delta
Get Healthy, Trim Down Delta is a program designed by Mississippi State University Extension Service to help communities develop local solutions to combat obesity within the Delta. The project targets four counties: Carroll, Holmes, Leflore, and Sunflower. These areas currently have some of the highest obesity rates in Mississippi. The program gives individuals an opportunity to come together and work to change things in the community's day-to-day environment that make it difficult to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Community involvement is leading the way to a healthier Delta!
The Delta Health Alliance is gratefully acknowledged for support of this project through HRSA Grant Number U1FRH07411. For more information about the Delta Health Alliance visit www.deltahealthalliance.org.
Mississippi State is launching a comprehensive initiative to help Mississippians battle obesity with a $5.5 million grant awarded to MSU Extension by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

August is Catfish Month and when you need a quick meal on the table in no time, catfish is your friend! With some cornmeal, spices, and some olive or vegetable oil, you can pan fry some Mississippi farm-raised catfish to have supper ready in 20 minutes or less. (Photo by Jonathan Parrish/Cindy Callahan)
