Healthy Communities

The World Health Organization defines a healthy community as:
"… one that is continually creating and improving those physical and social environments and expanding those community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and in developing to their maximum potential."
One of HRiA's strengths is our ability to build coalitions that engage a wide range of stakeholders around critical public health issues. Many of HRiA's healthy community efforts have had significant impact at the state and local level.
