The WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics Initiative

The WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics Initiative is a project of the WI Comprehensive Cancer Control Program, initially launched in partnership with the American Family Children's Hospital. The goal of this project is to engage and support Wisconsin hospitals and clinics in creating healthier food and beverage environments through policy, system and environmental changes.

This work supports Priority 2 - Increase healthy, active lifestyles - in the Wisconsin Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan 2015-2020 and is also a policy priority of the WI Cancer Council Policy Committee. The WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics initiative encompasses the WI Healthy Hospitals Community of Practice, the Farm to Hospital Community of Practice, and the WI Healthy Hospitals & Clinics Forum.
