THRIVE! Initiative

thrive challengeThe THRIVE! Initiative is a strategy of The Health Collaborative that recognizes organizations in the Dan River Region that are making an effort to improve the health of not only their members, but of our community as a whole. Designed to support the work of the Health for All action plan, the THRIVE! Initiative has the unique opportunity to improve health outcomes by reaching people where they spend time—at work, in their faith communities, at school and during out of school programs. With a few simple steps, your organization can start building a healthy environment and become part of the THRIVE! Community.
