Led by Gateway Community Action Partnership, the Live Healthy Bridgeton coalition is convening stakeholders from Bridgeton’s public, not for profit, health, education and business sectors to identify issues adversely affecting health in the community. Members of the Live Healthy Bridgeton coalition are participating in a year-long Boundary Spanning Leadership Institute delivered by the Center for Creative Leadership, and applying the tools from this Institute to affect change within their community. The team also includes a community coalition coach who acts as an advisor to the team and the larger coalition as they embark on building a healthier Bridgeton. In preparation for this three-year project, the coalition has developed a blueprint for action, outlining its work and timeline for building a healthier Bridgeton.
