About Live Healthy
Our health is largely influenced by the choices we make for ourselves and our families. But the conditions in the communities where Americans live, learn, work and play also play an important role in people's ability to make those healthy choices. Research shows that communities with smoke‐free air laws, access to healthy foods, quality affordable housing, good schools and safe places to play are healthier than those that don't. In fact, the economic, social and physical environments that surround us can have a much greater impact on our health than how often we go to the doctor's office. In light of these findings, greater emphasis must be placed on making neighborhoods themselves promote health.
Healthy Community Partnership
After an extensive selection process, Health Foundation of South Florida has begun to establish a multi‐year partnership with Little Havana stakeholders aimed at strengthening the community’s capacity to collaboratively plan and collectively carryout strategies that make this historic neighborhood healthier.
