Building a Healthier Community? Apply for a Prize

Apr 5, 2012, 9:55 PM, Posted by

There's a movement afoot. Cities and towns big and small, counties from coast to coast and groups of passionate individuals from all over are coming together across sectors to build healthier communities. If your community is at the forefront of this movement, it's your chance to get some recognition (and funding!) for your efforts. According to the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps website:

Throughout the country, people are coming together with a shared vision, strong leadership, and commitment to making needed and lasting changes that broadly improve community vitality... The Roadmaps to Health Prize is intended to honor these successful efforts and to inspire and stimulate similar activities in communities across the country.
