Get Involved

Improving the health of our community will never be accomplished alone. We strive to build partnership and collaborate with all people and organizations within our community, as well as surrounding communities, to work toward our vision that everyone will have an opportunity to reach their highest level of wellness!

Our efforts over the next four years will be focused on the top priority areas Behavioral Health, Healthy Aging, and Nutrition and Physical Activity. Taking action in any of these areas can be overwhelming.  With the help of the  Healthiest Greenfield Coalition, we've outlined some ideas of how different levels of our community can get involved in one or more of these areas.  Check out each section below to learn more!
  1. Behavioral Health
  2. Healthy Aging
  3. Nutrition & Physical Activity

Behavioral health is a larger term that includes other topics, such as mental health, addiction, and substance or alcohol misuse.
