Healthy Communities Coalition

The Healthy Communities Coalition is comprised of professionals, advocates, community members and leaders who are committed to fostering health among all residents in Eagle County. Currently, coalition initiatives are focused around healthy eating and active living.  The coalition works toward building a healthier Eagle County by convening key stakeholders and community members, fostering partnerships and collaboration, and supporting the development and implementation of initiatives related to improving community health. 

Healthy Communities Coalition Vision: By 2020, Eagle County will be a community that promotes and fosters a healthy environment for all.

Healthy Communities Coalition Mission: The Healthy Communities Coalition facilitates and empowers the community into action for lifelong wellness through healthy eating and active living.

The Healthy Communities Coalition hosts quarterly meetings, which take place at various locations throughout the Eagle River Valley.  The coalition uses a prioritization process to select evidence-based strategies related to healthy eating and active living. When a strategy is selected, a work group forms to develop and implement that strategy. Work groups will be comprised of coalition members and non-members. Following the implementation of a strategy, the work group will disband; coalition members will then have the opportunity to join other strategy-based work groups in the future.

The Healthy Communities Coalition is guided by an advisory committee that is comprised of select community leaders to provide strategic oversight for the long-term direction of the coalition.
