Muevete USA-Chicago is a nutrition and health education program developed by The National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN) and its Illinois Chapter (NAHN-IL). Originally, the program was designed and executed by NAHN as a pilot to raise awareness for the issue of childhood obesity, and encourage Hispanic youth to make and maintain healthy lifestyle changes.
In Chicago, a curriculum was developed and a small pilot program was held on Friday, August 3, 2012 at the Boys and Girls Club in the Little Village neighborhood of Chicago. Since 2010, the program has received $300,000 in funding from the Coca-Cola Foundation in the form of two grants. This year, plans are in action to work in the community of Little Village.
