Government Partners Benefit From Our Strategic Capacity & Flexibility

Governmental agencies have a central role in assuring community health and well being, but they also can benefit from private sector partners that can offer technical support as well as the flexibility that may be needed to capitalize on opportunities in a timely way.

 

At IPHI, we work closely with governments in the DC-MD-VA region to conduct community health planning activities, design and test innovative public health approaches, train the community health workforce, and implement aspects of health care reform.

Healthy Eating Active Living

Supporting Local Elected Officials to Develop and Implement Health-Producing Policies

The Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Cities & Towns Campaign is an initiative to help cities and towns in Maryland and Virginia stem the obesity epidemic by leveraging policy as a driver of environmental change. Increasingly, policymakers, advocates, and health care providers are recognizing that obesity is neither caused by, nor can be prevented by, individual actions alone. The opportunity to live a healthy life is shaped by the communities in which we live, work, learn, play, and worship. HEAL Cities & Towns is modeled after the successful California HEAL Cities Campaign, which began in 2008 and has helped over 142 CA cities adopt HEAL policies. The HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign for the Mid-Atlantic is funded by Kaiser Foundation Health Plan for the Mid-Atlantic States.

“Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.”

– Michelle Obama, First Lady
