Scale Back Alabama

Changes Ahead

Since 2007, thousands of Alabamians have participated in Scale Back Alabama at least once, and many have come back year after year. We thank you all for your participation and support of the program! We have enjoyed playing a small part in your journey to a healthy lifestyle, and we celebrate all of your accomplishments and milestones!

Beginning in 2023, we will no longer hold the annual 10-week program. Still, Scale Back Alabama will remain available as a resource for individuals and groups who want to set and track individual goals or as part of wellness programs. This webpage is under construction as we make this transition. Information, materials, and resources, once updated, will be available here beginning in January 2023.

The decision to end the annual program has not been easy, and we are not closing this chapter without opening a new one! We are looking forward to expanding our partnerships better to serve the health and wellness needs of Alabama communities. Check back for exciting updates!
