The Kitsap Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) Coalition planning team was formed from a group of community organizations that recognized the importance of a collective impact for community health improvement. Many had previous experience working together on a successful obesity prevention campaign called 5210Kitsap. The HEAL Coalition planning team evolved from a group wanting to share a similar message to a group ready to make lasting change. We recognized that lasting change requires a shift in the way we live, learn, work and play in Kitsap. This can be achieved through identification and implementation of strategies that address policies, systems and our environment. We hope this will make a lasting impact on the health of every Kitsap resident.
The coalition team has developed two focus areas; Healthy Eating and Active Living. Under these focus areas, goals and strategies will be identified for Kitsap County through research, discussion and stakeholder engagement. The strategies identified will be recognized as being essential to improving healthy eating and physical activity opportunities in our community.
Kitsap HEAL meets quarterly.
Work groups meet monthly or by decision of the group members.
