Building on the Hunterdon County Partnership for Health’s work to advance health in Hunterdon County, the Blueprint by the cross-sector Healthy Hunterdon: Motivating Culture Change for a Healthier Tomorrow coalition focuses on healthier weight as a mechanism for impacting community health. The Partnership has identified opportunities to advance their work in the areas of access and transportation, mental health and healthy behaviors. Regarding healthy behaviors, the Partnership’s goals include partnering with Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce to implement a worksite wellness strategy that builds a Culture of Health where people working in Hunterdon County are supported in adopting healthier behaviors.

The Hunterdon County coalition represents one of 20 New Jersey communities supported through the NJHI: Communities Moving to Action initiative. View this coalition’s early successes toward a healthier Hunterdon County and a healthier Garden State.
