Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL)
The goal of HEAL is to achieve long-term sustainable reductions in obesity and related chronic illnesses, including diabetes and heart disease. HEAL addresses behavioral, clinical, environmental and cultural factors that contribute to obesity through community based partnerships, grant-making, and education.
Trained staff provide technical assistance and help develop partnerships to community based organizations and collaboratives to address behavioral and environmental factors that contributes to chronic illnesses. The goal is to discover long-term, sustainable changes aimed at making their communities healthier places to live, work and play.
Through programs that integrate physical activity as part of daily life and provide access to fresh, nutritious, and affordable food, eventually, the healthy choice becomes the norm. This better way for healthy living prevents illness before it begins and reduces costs for care and coverage over the long term.
