Healthcare Consortium

The Vision 2030 Healthcare Consortium is an advocacy group who collects meaningful data, communicates results, and supports activities for the health of the community.  

The Blue Zone Community Summit, held in April 2016 and efforts to keep Hall Healthy are ongoing and the focus of the Healthcare Consortium. A group of stakeholders work collaboratively on keeping the 9 Power Approaches forefront and in action.  Efforts across Vision 2030 lines help to make these approaches the easy choice!
