Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) Idaho
Genuine solutions to the challenging problem of obesity require the joint effort of partners and collaborators. Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) Idaho is a voluntary network of organizations, agencies, businesses and individuals committed to creating an environment where all Idahoans have access to healthy food options and opportunities to be physically active to improve their health and well-being.
Through development of the HEAL Idaho Nutrition and Physical Activity Framework 2011-2013, HEAL Idaho members strive to create thriving communities where making the healthy choice is the easy choice.
HEAL Network members share information and access to resources through the HEAL Idaho website as well as regional meetings and an annual statewide summit. Through these web-based and group activities, members have access to:
- Tools for grassroots organizing,
- National, state and community–based educational offerings,
- Funding resources and opportunities,
- Calendar of upcoming member events and activities, and
- New partnerships for leveraging services and programs.
To become involved with HEAL Idaho, visit the HEAL Idaho website and register to become a member. Once approved, you will receive confirmation as a member of HEAL Idaho where you will have access to upcoming events, health information updates, grant funding opportunities, success stories, best practices, and member contacts.
HEAL Idaho is facilitated by the IDHW Bureau of Community and Environmental Health (BCEH) Idaho Physical Activity and Nutrition (IPAN) Program. As the facilitator and convenor, IPAN provides administrative support, communication coordination and fiscal management.
