Community Leadership Team

   

Working Together to Improve East Region Communities

The Live Well San Diego East Region Leadership Team was formed to assist in the implementation of the Live Well San Diego vision. The leadership team brings together community leaders, stakeholders and residents to initiate change that will help build healthy, safe, and thriving communities. The mission of the Live Well San Diego East Region Leadership Team is to improve the overall health and well-being of San Diego County residents through community engagement.

Through community engagement and assessment, the East Region Leadership Team identified public health issues confronting the Region, and formed three committees that address these issues.  These three workgroups aim to improve health by reducing preventable chronic diseases and creating healthy, safe, and thriving communities in our region.

The workgroups are:

Substance Abuse Prevention

Goal:

Reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and reduce underage consumption of alcohol by:

  • Implementing policy and system change to create a smoke-free environment
  • Implementing policy and systems change to promote responsible consumption of alcohol

Healthy Eating

Increase healthy eating in East County by:

  • Implementing educational resources to promote awareness about healthy eating in East County
  • Pursing environmental changes that result in increased healthy eating opportunities
