Welcome to the Healthy Berrien Consortium Website
The Healthy Berrien Consortium is a network of key health care organizations and leaders formed to jointly undertake improving the health and well-being of Berrien County residents. Although each member’s organization currently performs this function in its own unique way, the Healthy Berrien Consortium provides an opportunity that allows these organizations’ leaders to jointly assess, address ad assure community health endeavors that may be beyond the resources of any one agency.
The Healthy Berrien Consortium meets several times a year to discuss pressing health issues important to all of us. Currently, the Healthy Berrien Consortium is focusing on access to health care as a primary concern. Other charges for 2009 include establishing a Clean Air Michigan, free of second-hand smoke, and decreasing the obesity epidemic in our community. From time to time, the Consortium sponsors collaborative events with the public and our politicians in order to promote improved health and health care in Berrien County.
