Georgia’s Healthy Communities Initiative is engaging communities and mobilizing state wide networks to focus on chronic disease prevention. Communities are working to change the places and organizations that touch people’s lives every day—schools, work sites, health care sites, and other community settings—to turn the tide on the national epidemic of chronic diseases.

The policies, systems, and environments around us, including our communities, worksites, transportation systems, schools, faith-based organizations, and health care settings shape the pattern of our lives and our health. For example, the design and walkability of communities, the availability of low-cost fruits and vegetables, and the smoking policies in our workplaces have a direct impact on whether we walk to school, consume healthy foods and drinks, or are exposed to second-hand smoke.
