The Healthy Chesapeake Coalition is a “committed to building a culture of wellness that supports, sustains, and advocates for a healthier Chesapeake.” The Coalition determines the priorities to be tackled based on the Community Needs Assessment and leads the design and implementation of strategies, projects, and other efforts to address the community’s challenges.
The Coalition is focused currently on addressing Diabetes and Hypertension and supporting Access and Utilization of Healthy Foods.
The Coalition has ad hoc work teams that develop the methodology and provide the implementation of their projects. The Coalition has representatives on the Healthy Chesapeake 501(c)3 Board of Directors, who provide continuity between the two groups.
