Regional Partners

We have not achieved our successes working alone. In each area where HEAL Cities has a presence, we have forged working partnerships with regional public health advocacy organizations, state municipal leagues, and active community members.

In every state, we work with:

  • Public health organizations that  provide HEAL Cities with expertise on the obesity  epidemic, information and research about local health policies, model policy language in the areas of nutrition and physical activity, and connections with advocates who can support local policymaker agendas for change.
  • State municipal leagues that provide a pathway to engage with city leaders. These non-partisan membership organizations are dedicated to serving and strengthening government and services in their states' cities. The state municipal league advocate for their cities at the state and national levels, and support their members with leadership development, training, networking opportunities, conferences, and products.
