The HEAL team is excited about the prospects 2015 holds for HEAL NH and its partners to build on the six-year foundation of collaborative efforts that began with the launch of the 2008 Healthy Eating Active Living Action Plan for New Hampshire. We now have a new roadmap - the five-year Healthy People Healthy Places Plan - and we are already off and running.
One of our many projects is collecting information and resources on Joint Use Agreements (JUA). We will then make these resources available for communities, organizations, and other interested in increasing access to recreation opportunities through JUA's.
For the first time in its history, HEAL has an Active Living Coordinator which has helped our active transportation work take off. Our work continues to help communities plan and implement bicycle and walking transportation efforts.
Next Meeting is Thursday, February 26, 2015. Along with our regular HEAL updates and networking, HEAL welcomes speakers Neil Twitchell and Lisa Morris who will present the latest work of NH Public Health Regions.
