Healthy Monadnock 2020 website

Healthy Monadnock 2020 has a new interactive website to help members of the Monadnock Region community to develop better healthy living habits. The site, www.HealthyMonadnock.org is a comprehensive resource for local information about community health improvement, and personal health, wellness and physical activity across multiple sectors in the Monadnock Region.

The site includes helpful blog posts, monthly giveaways, local forums on healthy eating and active living, healthy living action alerts, health message text alerts, many links to local and national resources, a calendar of local events and more.

The site is also a place for people to sign up to become Healthy Monadnock 2020 Champions, a commitment to “walk the talk” and promote healthy living in the region. To date there are 105 local businesses, organizations and schools and more than 2500 individuals who are “championing” the cause of Healthy Monadnock 2020’s mission to become the healthiest community in the nation by the year 2020.

“This is a comprehensive on-line resource for local information about healthy living … from where to find the freshest food in the region to where to find help for smoking cessation and physical activity,” says Linda Rubin, director of Healthy Monadnock 2020’s Healthy Community Initiative. “It’s a ‘go to’ site in the region for Healthy Monadnock Champions and anyone interested in healthy living.”
