Walk the Talk: A Coalition Laces Up and Steps Out

This presentation is part of the We Are Stronger Together: Creative Coalitions to Promote Walking and Walkability session.

What began as a voluntary meeting of the minds of a diverse group  of stakeholders to address the rising incidence of chronic disease on Long Island has morphed into a dynamic coalition of some 60 plus organizations – from hospitals, health departments, health plans, academic institutions to community-based organizations and businesses.   With walking as a foundation and a unifying activity, learn how this collaborative keeps its feet moving and its focus on improving the health of community members relevant and real.
