LiveWell Colorado: A Catalyst for Healthier Communities
Together with its local partners, LiveWell Colorado is improving access to healthy food and physical activity, creating and sustaining healthy changes to public environments, and advancing health equity among Colorado’s most vulnerable populations.
The barriers to health faced by low-income families are all too real. Thirty percent of Colorado communities lack access to healthy food retail options, and many neighborhoods don’t have safe sidewalks, parks, playgrounds or recreational facilities. LiveWell’s approach to systems-level change focuses on removing these barriers – and increasing opportunities – for healthy eating and living in communities where the need is greatest.
