HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign

Advancing Healthy Eating & Active Living (HEAL) Policies Throughout Colorado

About LiveWell Colorado’s HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign

The HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign is a partnership between LiveWell Colorado, the Colorado Municipal League, and founding funder Kaiser Permanente. The Campaign provides free training and technical assistance to help municipal leaders adopt policies in three primary areas: active community, healthy food access, and healthy workplace. Utilizing the leadership and expertise of LiveWell Colorado results directly in positive change for cities and towns across the state. Think of it as critical guidance to increase access to biking, walking, recreation, healthy food, and a healthy municipal workplace—attributes that make any town healthier and more economically successful.

Joining the Campaign is free and easy.

Our staff assists in drafting a resolution, which outlines the focus of your policy area(s). Once the resolution is formally adopted, your town becomes a member of the Campaign with access to our free support, training, and technical assistance to help turn your policy goals into reality. We invite municipal leaders and advocates across Colorado to take advantage of our resources, knowledge, experience, and tools to help their communities engage in healthy eating and active living. Plus, by boosting the overall appeal of your city or town in the eyes of prospective new businesses and residents, it’s a smart economic development move too. Why not get started today? Join your colleagues across Colorado in the HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign.
