Live Healthy Oberlin

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

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).

  •  Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) works with partners around the region to make it safer and easier for people to be physically active. Active transportation - or human powered travel, like walking and biking - helps people meet daily physical activity recommendations.

  • Age-related changes, disabilities, and chronic health conditions may make it difficult to go grocery shopping, especially in rural locations and for people with a low income. The Coalition for Quality Aging (CQA), which works to improve the quality of aging for older adults in Lorain County, identified this barrier and worked to find solutions. CQA partners at Oberlin Community Services (OCS) proposed to test out a food delivery service for people in southern Lorain County who can’t get to the store due to disability or age-related challenges.
