Live Well Alabama is a SNAP-Ed initiative developed by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System at Auburn University. The Live Well Alabama initiative includes nutrition education for youth and adults, social marketing campaigns, and policy, system, and environmental change strategies. The ultimate goal is to educate and equip Alabamians to make healthy and economical food and physical activity choices.

Eat Better. Move More. Make A Change.

Alabama is consistently among the highest in the United States for adult and child obesity and related health issues. Many individual, environmental, and societal factors also contribute to the difficulties Alabamians face in achieving a healthy lifestyle. Sustainable change requires a comprehensive approach with many sectors of society working together.

There is great potential for positive change and many local successes happen every day. With strong partnerships at the local, state, and national level, widespread and lasting change is right around the corner. Helping individuals and families develop healthy eating patterns and physically active lifestyles and building partnerships to improve the health of communities are among key Live Well Alabama efforts.
