The Better Together Steering Committee is addressing three areas of focus, which emerged based on partner expertise, annual Better Together Summit attendee interests, and available resources. These priority areas are split amongst three action teams: Physically Active Communities, Healthy Food Access, and Behavioral Health.
Additional community representatives who are knowledgeable experts in these identified areas are being invited to take part in the Better Together initiative on an on-going basis.
Action team goals include determining current community assets, compiling available resources, developing program strategies and evaluation tools, and identifying where in Lebanon County to implement selected programs. In addition, action teams are collaborating to prevent duplication of efforts. By working together, each step taken improves access to healthy choices, and reinforces positive behaviors and active living, resulting in a healthier Lebanon County.
