The places where we live, learn, work, and play all contribute to our ability to become and stay healthy. Creating Healthy Schools and Communities (CHSC), a five-year (2015–2020) New York State Department of Health-funded initiative, is helping build stronger, healthier communities. In year three of CHSC (October 2017 – September 2018), 25 grantees and their partners worked with schools, businesses, government, and other groups to improve policies, systems, and environments to ensure places throughout New York State provide access to healthy foods and opportunities for physical activity. The stories in this booklet showcase the successes of these grantees.
