SLHI recognizes the potentially devastating impact of the growing childhood and adult obesity rates. In order to take an active role in reversing the epidemic, we have decided to support health community design, improve the built environment of neighborhoods, support community based healthy eating active living efforts and improve the availability and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. We understand that this is a community effort and have partnered with various organizations that are in the trenches, making a difference.
If you would like to help us improve the health of our community, we are in search of community partnership that:
- Connect with people
- Define issues that will build healthy communities
- Develop innovative solutions for lasting change
- Foster individual and community assets
- Recognize opportunities and take action
