Initiatives & Projects

Initiatives and projects focus on community health

Healthy By Design was created with an overarching goal in mind — improve the health of our community. Since HBD was founded in 2006, three areas have emerged as the top priorities for our community to address.

— Healthy Weight

— Access to Health Services

— Mental Health, Substance Abuse

Members of the community have come together to develop and approve strategies to reach those goals of increasing the proportion of residents who have a healthy weight, improving access to health services, and addressing mental health issues. The many initiatives and programs undertaken by Healthy By Design and its partners are designed to help meet those goals and improve the quality of live for all community members.
