Welcome to the Healthy Community Checklist

  • What is the Healthy Community Checklist?
    The Healthy Community Checklist is a 40-item online quick assessment of a community’s health environment related to promoting and supporting physical activity, healthy eating/healthy weight, and tobacco-free lifestyles.

  • Who should complete the Checklist?
    Any Michigan community (city, village, township) that is interested creating a healthier community environment.

  • Why the Checklist?
    A community that promotes good health is a great place to live. By completing the Checklist, communities receive feedback about the extent to which they make it easy for people to be active, eat healthfully and adopt tobacco-free lifestyles. Completing the Checklist offers ideas about changes communities can make to promote healthier living. For more on the benefits, visit the About the Checklist section.
