Healthy Monadnock



We haven’t changed our goal of becoming the healthiest community in the nation by 2020. In fact, we’re committed as ever!

That’s why we have changed our name and look. Vision 2020 is now Healthy Monadnock 2020, so that everyone understands our goal.

Some 49% of our residents say they know about the goal, but most people still don’t. We know that if we’re going to succeed, we need everyone on board with Healthy Monadnock 2020.

Healthy Monadnock 2020, formerly Vision 2020, is a community-wide health initiative designed to actively engage the citizens of Cheshire County in the process of becoming the nation's healthiest community by the year 2020. Founded and developed by Cheshire Medical Center in 2006, Healthy Monadnock 2020's activities are now being guided in the community by the Healthiest Community Advisory Board, a group of 30 individuals representing schools, organizations, coalitions and businesses.

update coverThe Healthy Mondanock 2020 Update June 2013 booklet (PDF) is a follow up to the Update booklet released in October 2011 (PDF) and the Cheshire County Community Plan (PDF) released in early 2010. The indicators being used to measure our progress have been reworked and updated and there are lots of examples of how Champions are helping to make the healthy choice the easy choice for everyone in our community. Partners are profiled in this update and their progress in implementing the action strategies of the initiative is shared.

Lead by a coalition of community partners representing multiple sectors - healthcare, education, private business, municipal and state governments, non-profit agencies, and recreational organizations - five Healthy Monadnock 2020 goals, encompassing a broad spectrum and vision of "health" have been identified:

  • Social determinants that influence health
  • Education and awareness of healthy lifestyle behaviors
  • Healthy eating
  • Active living
  • Social support networks

No one plans to get sick or hurt, but most people need medical care at some point. Health insurance covers these costs and protects you from very high expenses. What’s the value of health insurance? Check out this short video to find out.
