Boulder County Healthy Eating & Active Living Team

The Boulder County Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) Team is a group of community members and organizations dedicated to improving healthy eating and active living opportunities for children in Boulder County.

Purpose

The purpose of the Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) Implementation team is to collectively align existing and new interventions related to healthy eating, active living, and healthy weight to prevent obesity and improve the health of children 0-18 in Boulder County, with a focus on early childhood.

Health Equity

Our team is especially dedicated to improving health among groups that are disproportionately affected by obesity, diabetes, and other diseases associated with the lack of healthy eating and active living opportunities. One alarming disparity is the impact of diabetes on the Latino/Hispanic community in Boulder County and across the world. Please visit our disparities dashboard for more information.
