Vision: Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice
Mission: Creating Healthy Communities (CHC) is committed to preventing and reducing chronic disease statewide. Through cross-sector collaboration, we are activating communities to improve access to and affordability of healthy food, increase opportunities for physical activity, and assure tobacco-free living where Ohioans live, work and play. By implementing sustainable evidence-based strategies, CHC is creating a culture of health.
Examples of our work:
The Chronic Disease Prevention Advisory Board (CDPAB) is
a long-standing coalition serving Greater Columbus with a common agenda to
increase opportunities for physical activity, healthy eating, and
smoke/tobacco-free living through cross-sector collaboration.
