Goal: Reduce the risk of chronic disease across the lifespan.

Numerator: Number of classrooms or schools that sign on to 3-4-50, including a commitment to daily recess

Denominator: No denominator.

Significance: Recognizing the tendency to address chronic disease prevention and health promotion from discrete silos based on behavior or disease, HPDP has planned and implemented a two-pronged approach to communicate a coordinated message about chronic disease and engage new partners from multiple sectors to address it. 3-4-50 is a statewide initiative to create an epiphany about chronic disease and spur action to reduce the incidence of disease. Based on San Diego County’s efforts using the three numbers, Vermont’s chronic disease unit has created a series of data briefs, communication tools and partner engagement materials that focus attention on the three behaviors of tobacco use, physical inactivity and poor diet that lead to the four chronic diseases of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and lung disease that together result in more than 50 percent of deaths in Vermont. This initiative seeks to make chronic disease prevention simple and to help leaders across multiple sectors in the community recognize that they are partners in prevention. Engaging worksites, schools and childcares, cities and towns, retailers, and faith communities, the message and strategies of 3-4-50 bring data and evidence-based interventions together to create a simple to understand initiative that spurs urgent action. Specifically in schools and childcare programs, 3-4-50 calls out ways to help children learn healthy behaviors from the start. Tips for each include ways to help children eat healthier foods, be more physically active and, for older children, information and skills that will help them say no to tobacco use. The 3-4-50 tips and sign on sheets build from simple, effective interventions to more complex but longer lasting policy changes that will solidify strong nutrition and physical activity programs and prevent tobacco use initiation.
