In 2011 the PWT began to implement their recommendations to form 3 PWTs. The Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) PWT is working on Choose Health efforts. A second PWT, Risk and Thriving in Adolescence, has been approved. See: http://cce.cornell.edu/learnAbout/pcs-pwts/Pages/ActiveProgramWorkTeams.aspx
