NCHC remains an active partner working to build healthy and thriving communities by promoting wellness programs, reducing food insecurity, and providing access to services and benefits. We’re excited to announce that NCHC will be receiving grant funding from the State of VT, NVRH, and OneCare Vermont to continue this work!
Jennifer Grant will build upon her previous work as one of our Community Resource Coordinators to devote time in helping NEK Prosper! efforts to integrate with similar State efforts. Jen will serve as the Vermont Blueprint Regional Coordinator for Self-Management Programs, which empowers community members to learn the skills needed to prevent and manage chronic diseases. Jen will also serve as the RiseVT Community Health Lead, supporting NEK Prosper!’s programming to promote physical activity, healthy food, and social and emotional well-being among other goals.
Jen recently helped to launch an effort through NEK Prosper! called Walk Your Way to Better Health walking map project. Read more about it here: http://bit.ly/3vzLR0l.
