The Morris Area Wellness Partnership has collaborated with the West Morris YMCA, the Morristown Area YMCA, and Child and Family Resources to initiate a physical activity and healthy eating project for two preschools. The project includes a self assessment and plans to help address gaps in healthy activities at the schools. The Partnership recently became a charter member of the North Jersey Health Collaborative, seeking to coordinate and partner with other organizations working on the health and wellness of Morris County residents.
The Morris Area Wellness Partnership regularly collaborates with Morris County organizations and NJ State offices. You may have seen us at the Morristown Partnership's Fall Festival on the Green, the YMCA's Healthy Kids Day, the Mayors Wellness Campaign Healthy Cook-off, or at various Morris County Park Commission events at our booth, "Healthy Earth, Healthy You", with hands-on activities provided by our Steering Committee members.
