Partnership for a Healthier New Haven

The Partnership for a Healthier New Haven is an effort of the City’s Community Services Administration to mobilize leaders in the private sector, public sector and academia towards creating policy that will positively impact the health of the New Haven community.  The Partnership will focus on two broad areas:  childhood obesity and community safety.

Their responsibilities include:

  • Developing  a strong membership network of  leaders, coalitions and councils across sectors with commitment to scaling meaningful and measurable solutions;
  • Reviewing annual progress and impact of stated goals;
  • Promoting broad understanding among all sectors about the impact of societal determinants on health, as it relates to childhood obesity and community safety;
  • Developing and advocating for policy that supports healthier safer and stronger communities;
