About HCCA: Healthy Communities of the Capital Area addresses quality of life issues related to public health primary prevention efforts. HCCA works to increase physical activity, improve nutrition, prevent tobacco use and exposure, and prevent substance misuse, among other chronic disease prevention initiatives. This is done by connecting with others in the communities HCCA serves to identify strategies to improve overall health, allowing community members to be more productive, require less medical care, and lead quality lives. One component of this work is talking with people in the community about what they think a healthy community is to help better guide HCCA’s work. Learn more at www.hccame.org
