Formed in 2009, the La Crosse Healthy Living Collaboration (HLC) brought together groups working on nutrition, physical activity and tobacco control. The mission of HLC is to make living tobacco free, eating healthy and being physically active the norm among La Crosse County residents. We are representatives from the community, area schools, public health, private businesses, health care and family serving agencies working to make La Crosse County the healthiest county in WI.
Through collaboration and successful grant writing HLC is currently implementing their 2012-2015 strategic plan.
Each year the La Crosse Healthy Living Collaboration seeks to recognize local residents who have worked to make La Crosse County a healthier place to live, work, and play by creating policy and environmental changes that have made it easier to be physically active, eat healthy, and/or be tobacco free.
