Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria - Community Meeting

Please join Partnership members, community leaders and community members in a discussion about how everyone can take action to improve the health and well-being of the Alexandria community.  This meeting will focus on the implementation of Alexandria’s Community Health Improvement Plan  —achievements to date and the work we need to do. This community plan embraces the idea that the health and well-being of everyone in our community depends on more than just access to health care and prevention, treatment, and wellness programs. It includes many social and economic issues such as access to healthy food, stable and affordable housing, employment and job training, transportation options, recreation, trails parks and open space opportunities and public safety. This meeting is an opportunity to learn, share, network and identify next steps in continuing to make Alexandria a great place to live, work, and play.
