Congratulations to Greensville County, VA!
With the passing of a HEAL Resolution by the County Board of Supervisors on April 6, Greensville is now the first county in the HEAL Cities, Towns, & Counties Campaign for the Mid-Atlantic.
Greensville County, through which Interstate 95 runs, borders North Carolina on the southern boundary of the Commonwealth and encompasses the City of Emporia, another new HEAL Campaign member. In recognition of the serious threat obesity poses to the nearly 12,000 children, adults, and families living in the county, the HEAL Resolution will identify health goals and policies related to access to healthy food. The HEAL Campaign Staff will work with the county's Community Health Advocacy Team to implement the Resolution.
