The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky is updating the Kentucky Health Coalitions Directory, a list of local groups working on health related issues in the Commonwealth.  This is the first revision of the 2012 directory. The Foundation wants to identify additional coalitions and update group contact information. There are 143 active coalitions listed in the Foundation’s current Kentucky Health Coalitions Directory. Some are increasing access to healthy food and physical activity; others are planning needed screenings and education for people at risk for serious health problems like diabetes and other chronic diseases; yet others are improving working conditions through smoke-free ordinances. These groups represent health change efforts in all of the Commonwealth’s 120 counties.

Follow the link: to submit new or revised information to the Coalitions Directory.  The Foundation’s aim in creating and now updating the directory is to raise awareness of these local efforts and to foster collaboration, build local capacity, provide technical assistance to these groups and celebrate their successes.
