Live Healthy Oberlin

The Live Healthy Oberlin coalition is a community group that is conducted through the Creating Healthy Communities Program at the Lorain County General Health District.

PURPOSE: As a part of the Creating Healthy Communities Program, Live Healthy Oberlin will connect people and resources to improve the Oberlin community by assessing and promoting opportunities for increased physical activity, improved nutrition, and reduced tobacco use and exposure… creating a community where the healthy choice is the easy choice!

Live Healthy Oberlin, partnering worksites, community organizations, and schools use an assessment called the CHANGE tool to define areas for improvement, and to consider appropriate allocation of available resources.

The Creating Healthy Communities program is funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Ohio Department of Health (ODH).
