Overview

The Healthy Communities Unit promotes health and prevents chronic conditions by creating environments, policies, and systems that support wellness for everyone. Health equity is one of our core values, and we use this lens to approach our work. Evidence-based strategies are used to increase access to healthy food and physical activity, create tobacco-free environments, prevent injury and help older adults age in place. This work is accomplished through strong, regional partnerships with community-based organizations, health care providers and citizens focused on population-based change.

Current Initiatives include:
Healthy Communities Coalition
West Mountain Tobacco Education and Prevention Program
WorkWell Collaborative
