Great news!  The CDC gave us a heads up this week that AZ will be receiving a new $842,000 Chronic Disease Prevention & Health Promotion grant.  While all states were guaranteed $300,000 on a non-competitive basis, we successfully competed for a supplemental award.  We’ll be able to be able to address the leading causes of chronic disease death in Arizona by focusing on enhancing infrastructure needs, policy development, and environmental change.  This grant will allow us to sharpen our focus on Healthy Community Design, School Health Policies, Integration of Clinical and Community Systems, and Implementation of Evidence-based Worksite Wellness in Arizona and our important work with behavioral health.  Visit our Healthy Worksites Website for a forecast of what will be happening with worksite wellness through the grant.
