Inspired by the renowned success of MaineHealth’s Let’s Go! Program, launched in 2006, NV 5-2-1-0 is built upon successes. With nearly 1500 registered sites across Maine and expanding to select locations in the US and Canada, this approach has gained substantial traction. Schools, workplaces, military families, and entire communities have enthusiastically embraced the 5-2-1-0 framework, fostering a culture of holistic well-being. The results are evident: Maine’s data showcases positive shifts in children’s health behaviors and a gradual reduction in childhood BMI, even amid the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic (1). These initial achievements underscore NV 5-2-1-0’s potential to create a sustained impact in Nevada.

Embarking on this journey, NV 5-2-1-0 starts by equipping healthcare providers with ready-to-use tools and resources to guide patients toward healthier choices. The program will encompass diverse sectors as funding expands, ensuring a comprehensive approach.
