U.S. Business Sector is Building Community Health

New initiative Urges Action from Businesses, Stakeholders to Transform America’s Communities, Become Champions in National Health and Well-Being Movement

Watervine client, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, in conjunction with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, recently launched the Health Means Business Champions Network. This first-of-its-kind initiative provides businesses and community stakeholders the tools they need to take action and become leaders in a movement for a healthier America. 

The Champions Network will provide various tools and practical resources that enable businesses, chambers of commerce, and community stakeholders to become health champions. “Business and community leaders across the country who are already building a culture of health know that these investments are good for business and good for communities,” said Marjorie Paloma, director and senior program officer for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. “The Champions Network is an important tool for engaging American businesses and their community partners to take action and invest in corporate and community health.”

The Health Means Business Champions Network is a key element of the Health Means Business campaign, a two-year commitment by the U.S. Chamber Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – in cooperation with local, state, and regional chambers – to foster engagement in the wellness of American communities.
