Building Momentum

The Health Committee has many exciting projects and a great group working on them. If you want to help grow the health and well-being of our community, please join us. We meet every third Tuesday evening by Zoom from 7-8 pm. Our next meeting is December 27th. Please email for meeting information.

Here are the projects we have underway:

  • January 15th, 2023 the health committee will be leading the Community Conversation to help us all kick off 2023 to make it a year of better health and well-being. We will be talking about food, fitness and feelings and kicking off a challenge that everyone can take part in.
  • February 18, 2023 the health committee will be leading a segment of the Senator Bettye Davis Summit. We will be handing out prizes and engaging people young and old to keep the momentum going. We are also developing a focus on mental health and suicide prevention building on our individual and community strengths.
  • We are working closely with ABC leadership to secure funding for ongoing programs focused on health and well being that will be offered at the Equity Center and in the community.
  • ABC has been invited to apply for a national funding opportunity alongside UAA professors Drs. Amana Mbise and Rei Shimizu to focus on health and well being over the next decade. We are putting together the application that is due January 30th.
