The Healthy Chesapeake Coalition is comprised of vested citizens and community partners working together to support the design and implementation of strategies, projects, and other efforts to address challenges and seize opportunities to support the health of Chesapeake.
Per their self-determined mission statement they are a “coalition committed to building a culture of wellness that supports, sustains, and advocates for a healthier Chesapeake.” The Coalition is an integral part of Healthy Chesapeake and plays an important role in developing responses to identified community needs. Their initial focus is centered around the development of Active Lifestyles and Healthy Eating efforts.
The Coalition has ad hoc work teams that develop the methodology and provide the implementation of their projects. The Coalition membership has representation on the Healthy Chesapeake 501(c)3 Board of Directors that provide continuity between the two groups.
