2012 Creating Healthy Communities Success Stories

The Creating Healthy Communities (CHC) program is working to increase opportunities for physical activity, improve access to and affordability of healthy food, and assure tobacco free living to improve the health of Ohioans and prevent chronic disease statewide. CHC is helping communities, schools, worksites, healthcare and faith-based institutions to become places where healthier choices are easier choices.

CHC has ongoing projects in 16 Ohio counties and continues to be efficient and cost-effective. These counties are seeing impressive results and outcomes that have a positive impact on millions of Ohioans.

The success stories included in this report showcase the program’s outcomes and serve as a call to action for increased community involvement around the importance and need for chronic disease prevention. The stories are a testament to the hard work of local CHC grantees and show the dedication this program has on improving the health of Ohioans.
