Is Your Town A Healthy Town?
The New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute’s Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) supports its mayors’ efforts to make their towns a Healthy Town. The “Healthy Town” designation recognizes communities in which mayors have made healthy lifestyles a top priority and are actively engaging all the members of their community. Each year, the Mayors Wellness Campaign awards up to two Healthy Town designations that recognize community health and wellness activities conducted in the past calendar year.
New Healthy Town Application
In 2014, we had a record number of applications for our Healthy Town designation. We realized so many of our towns are doing incredible things, and we want to be able to better track this impact and continuously tailor our services so we can serve you better. We elicited the help and expertise of municipal officers and evaluation experts to create our new Healthy Town Application and accompanying rubric. Please use the rubric as a framework for your town’s MWC, whether or not you apply for the Healthy Town designation!
