The Be Healthy QC Coalition seeks to align all sectors of our bi-state community and work together on program, policy, systems and environmental changes in order to create a “culture of wellness” that supports healthy eating and active living.

This work is supported by the Quad City Health Initiative, a cross-sector partnership working to create a healthy community since 1999. The Quad City Health Initiative creates collaborative action on health and abides by the core values of commitment, collaboration and creativity. The Initiative seeks to be our community’s recognized leader for creating collaborative action on health and abides by the core values of commitment, collaboration and creativity. Major financial support of the Quad City Health Initiative is currently provided by the generous direct and in-kind investments of Genesis Health System and UnityPoint Health-Trinity.
