Healthy Community Culture

Chambers of commerce are known for championing opportunities to raise the quality of life for their residents, as their members prosper from such opportunities. These organizations—which typically represent diverse sectors of the community, including business, non-profit, education, and health and government entities—are uniquely poised to serve as community health intermediaries that can offer opportunities for their members to participate in health and wellness events, programs, councils, or other initiatives. By creating a healthy community culture, chambers of commerce can ensure economic vitality and equitable prosperity, fulfilling its community’s vision.
