A Culture of Health Across Vermont

Imagine a community where healthy choices are equitable and accessible, where your ZIP code doesn’t determine your health. We are fighting heart diseases and stroke, the No. 1 and No. 5 killers of all Americans. From working alongside community leaders, to supporting more walking and biking routes, to driving initiatives that make healthier food options available in all neighborhoods, to providing our kids with more opportunities to be active in school – together we are making it easier to be healthy where we live, work, learn and play.

Every year in Vermont, 1,434 people die from a heart attack or stroke.
