Who We Are

SCOPE (Sustainable Childhood Obesity Prevention through Community Engagement) is an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital that partners with communities across British Columbia to promote healthy weights among children through sharing and supporting Live 5-2-1-0 – a simple, easy-to-remember message to help kids and families adopt healthy habits.
