Live Healthy Appalachia’s (LHA) mission is to promote healthy eating and active living through educational opportunities and community partnerships. This mission is reflected in their programs, classes, and events in the community. Their vision is empowered people making healthy choices. Formed in 2010, Live Healthy Appalachia is an Athens, Ohio-based nonprofit organization which aims to promote health and wellbeing in the Appalachian region. Since their inception, over 7000 individuals in the region have taken part in LHA programs promoting health and wellness. Their programs include Live Healthy Kids (LHK), which serves second grades in Athens, Washington, and Scioto Counties; the Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP), which is offered in Athens County to adults; professional development opportunities including the Appalachian Health Summit and worksite wellness activities which target professionals in Southeast Ohio; and volunteer-driven community health projects, such as Cooking Coaches, and My First 5K which take place in Athens and Hocking Counties.
