What started as a simple but somewhat audacious idea has evolved into the shared intention of more than 60 partners to identify, lift up and celebrate work being done statewide to improve community health.
It starts with the premise that the work of improving health extends beyond health care, into all of the places where we live, work, learn and play. The breadth of this work is encompassed by the Elements of a Healthy Community wheel, which stands at the center of the newly launched website, at livewellaz.org.
Throughout 2017, events and workshops will connect sectors, engage hearts and minds, and influence policy and systems change.
The website is here for all of us to build into a hub of resources and knowledge. With a framework established, 2017 is the year to go “around the wheel” – exploring, connecting and building new opportunities together. Visit the site today to learn more. Click the center of the wheel to see the plan for the year. You can also add your organization’s resources and knowledge to the elements and submit your 2017 healthy communities event for publication and promotion.
