This statewide movement aims to transform communities into healthy environments for all.

2) Assist businesses with worksite wellness initiatives including organizational assessments, surveys, wellness policy development and systems and environmental changes.

3) Educate the community about issues related to tobacco and multi-unit housing as well as public outdoor areas.

4) Educate the community on the importance of healthy eating and being physically active.
