Help Us Make Barry County the Healthiest Rural County in Michigan!
To fight obesity and make Barry County a healthier community, every member of our community has the potential to play a role and be involved in B.Healthy. By joining the B.Healthy Coalition, you would serve as a support and delivery system for our B.Healthy program. You will help empower local residents to enhance their health and well-being by spreading the message about our initiatives and engage other community members into making the healthy decisions to have Barry County become a healthier place.
Example of the messages you will be promoting within your local community involve changing vending machines to include healthy options in our schools, creating policies to make it safer to walk/ bike to school, assist local cities in creating community gardens and hosting farmers markets, encouraging trail/recreational facility development, and talking with local restaurants to promote healthy menu options.
