The New York State Association of County Health Officials (NYSACHO) has launched a new website www.cutyoursugar.org This site contains information on making healthier choices in the beverages that we consume, with a focus on the adult population, information on increasing the availability of healthy beverages in vending machines in the workplace and provides information on projects of four local health departments that were funded by the New York State Department of Health, Bureau of Community Chronic Disease Prevention, through NYSACHO.  We hope that the section on “Lessons Learned” helps your efforts to make changes in your own workplace beverage vending machines.
