Healthy Monadnock

 

 

Healthy Monadnock is a community engagement initiative designed to foster and sustain a positive culture of health throughout Cheshire County and the Monadnock Region.

Founded and developed by the Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene in 2007, Healthy Monadnock’s action plans are being guided in the community by the Council for a Healthier Community, a group of 30+ individuals representing schools, organizations, coalitions and businesses. Community partners and Champions are working together to improve the quality of life and prevent the leading causes of death for everyone by implementing strategies to:

  • increase healthy eating and active living
  • increase income and jobs
  • improve mental wellbeing
  • increase emergency preparedness
  • reduce substance misuse including tobacco
  • increase educational attainment, and
  • increase access and quality of healthcare

Healthy Monadnock's website is filled with resources and tools and is regularly updated with fresh, locally focused articles. We offer a community calendar sharing events from community champions. Click here to visit the site and help us become the healthiest community in the nation!
