Making Michigan a Healthier Place to Live

This site provides tools and resources for communities to get started or enhance their efforts. If you are part of a neighborhood, school or faith-based organization or would like to collaborate with one of these venues, you are in the right spot.

It is important to have collaboration within communities and work with community leaders to make policies and environmental changes that will support moving more, eating better and eliminating tobacco.

The Michigan Department of Community Health has a goal to help Michigan's citizens and their communities achieve better health. If every community makes it easier to be physically active, eat healthfully and live tobacco-free lifestyles, Michigan would be a healthier place to live.
