When & Where
HEAL NH envisions a New Hampshire where all residents have options to make healthy choices.
Established in 2008, HEAL NH is a network of state and community partners dedicated to advancing population-based approaches to reduce the prevalence of obesity and chronic disease in New Hampshire. HEAL NH aims to improve access to healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity, prioritizing its work in communities and populations with the greatest health disparities.
HEAL NH fosters policy, systems and environmental change strategies to achieve the following long-term goals:
1. New Hampshire residents will have equitable access to options for getting around, and safe places to play and be active.
2. New Hampshire residents will have equitable access to healthy food.
Because New Hampshire's public health challenges cut across sectors and policy areas, HEAL NH has brought together network partners representing health, land use, transportation, education, food systems, economic development, housing, environment, policy makers, business, and industry professional groups to achieve long-term sustained change.
