This project is funded through the Northwest Suburban Health Alliance/ CHNA 15 DoN funds from Lahey Clinic, Winchester Hospital and Mount Auburn Hospital

The Healthy Concord project conducted a year of public outreach to determine what will make Concord a healthier place to live and work. Two themes were repeated in interviews, surveys, and discussions: people of all ages in Concord are experiencing stress, with particular concern for youth, and there is desire for safer roads and paths for bicycling, sidewalks for walking and better transportation in general.  Based on what was learned in the public outreach process, Healthy Concord will launch two initiatives beginning in Winter 2014--– a community Mindfulness and Resiliency program; and a Road Safety initiative that incorporates bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians.
