What does a healthier New Haven look like? How can we build it?

 

The Health Equity Alliance and the Health Matters! Commission want to hear from you about what it takes to build a healthy New Haven. Your input will contribute to the creation of a video documentary that will be debuted during our Fall 2010 Visioning a Healthier City Conference and shared with stakeholders and key influencers in New Haven.

              

               Why talk about a healthy New Haven?

 

The health and wellbeing of New Haven depends not only on the health of its citizens but on the health of the community.

 

                Who is involved in this effort?

 

Partners and supporters from across local government and the New Haven community are working with us to create a Healthy New Haven!

 

               Why should you become involved in this effort?

 

A healthy New Haven begins with you! Through your support and participation, you and fellow Elm City residents will become a part of an ambitious and achievable goal of making New Haven a safer and healthier city in which to live.
