Community Strategic Plan
LiveWell Garfield County has developed three main assessments to identify barriers and drivers to healthy eating active living (HEAL) in our community. The initial assessment was a part of the first HEAL Coalition meeting in 2012. Our coalition members listed concerns in the community related to physical activity and food. Once the lists were compiled, participants ranked those issues they felt were most important to their constituents.
