Community Health Initiatives

The Berrien County Health Department leads and participates in a variety of community health initiatives that focus on public health disparities and health issues. The Health Department supports innovative efforts to bring nutritious foods and safe physical activity opportunities to communities across Berrien County. We believe that a healthy communities provide environments that support the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of all those who life, work, learn, and play there. Our community health initiatives take a prevention-driven approach to health, supporting policies and environmental changes that promote healthy eating, active living, the reduction of health inequalities, and strong families.
