Leadership Council

Healthy & Active Before 5 is a collaborative initiative to prevent obesity among Contra Costa children age 0-5 . A Leadership Council guides our work to implement the Healthy & Active Before 5 Action Plan.

The Leadership Council acts as our community sounding board. They help keep us honest. In 2007, our Leadership Council provided invaluable guidance and consensus in the development of our Action Plan. Now, we ask the Leadership Council’s help with implementing our plan and principles within the wider community.

Our Council represents the work of more than 50 community agencies. Members meet 2-3 times a year to help us overcome barriers and celebrate program successes. Membership is by special invitation.

As a Leadership Council member, we ask that you…

  1. Integrate Healthy and Active Before 5 into the practices and policies of your agency.
  2. Promote the Healthy and Active Before 5 principles through your collaborations, conversations and correspondence.

Are you interested in joining us? For more information, email Emily Warming, Healthy & Active Before 5 Program Manager, at healthyb45[at]gmail.com.
