Chronic Disease Prevention

The Healthy Living Program, referred to as EPICC, focuses on lowering the rate of diabetes, heart disease, and obesity among children and adults in our community. We accomplish this through increasing access to healthy foods, improving food and beverage standards, promoting and increasing opportunities for physical activity, pedestrian and active transportation plans, and offering evidence-based lifestyle change programs through community partners.

EPICC is short for Healthy Living through Environment, Policy and Improved Clinical Care. We refer to it as ‘Healthy Living’. We understand that there are many ways to solve a problem, and none of these issues only have one solution. We accomplish our goals in partnership with cities, health systems, national organizations, schools and other local communities to address these important health concerns.
