Health and Wellness Initiative
At the heart of the be well movement are the be well Block Captains. be well Block Captains are residents and community stakeholders who are “on-the-ground” to provide a trusted hand in helping their family, friends and neighbors lead healthy lives. They educate their fellow community members on important health topics and opportunities, connect them to health resources and engage in efforts to create healthier communities.
be well Block Captains encourage healthy living through innovative leadership, community organizing, education and advocacy, programs and screenings, and social media.

"I have tools and new language to talk about what is going on in the be well Zone. It's given me new language like health equity and food deserts, which is very appropriate for my community."
- Pat Guest, be well Block Captain.
