Healthiest Nation 2030: It has a nice ring to it.

Categories: Building Resilience, Community Engagement, Healthy Places, Income and Jobs, Physically Active, Well Nourished

Déjà vu?  “Healthiest Nation 2030” is the theme for the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) National Public Health Week. The initiative is designed to raise awareness and increase understanding about public health services and health improvement activities, and ultimately to help the U.S. become the healthiest country on earth in one generation. This is music to our ears at Healthy Monadnock, where our vision is to become the healthiest community in the US by the year 2020.

The challenge stems from staggering statistics about the U.S. health care system and life expectancy rates in comparison to other high-income countries. Thanks to our recent grant by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we’ll be rolling out several initiatives with our partner agencies and look forward engaging deeper with our community and making the healthy choice the easy choice for everyone in the Monadnock Region.
