HEAL grantees and supporters gathered at the Concord Holiday Inn on December 7 for a celebration of HEAL NH's first round of grant communities. Representatives from the Cheshire County, Greater Franklin, Lakes Region, and Upper Valley HEAL community partnerships shared successes and personal stories from their 3 year grant projects (2009-2012) with attendees. The day was a testament to the outstanding work accomplished by these partnerships as they demonstrated the transformation HEAL work can make in the communities and organizations with whom they worked. Combined, the four partnerships implemented healthy eating and active living strategies in over 50 cities and towns, providing increased opportunities for thousands of residents to improve health and quality of life.
