The Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) Grant

The PICH grant was awarded to the Quad City Health Initiative by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Fall 2014 through the fiscal agent UnityPoint Health - Trinity. This grant allowed QCHI and its partners to create four projects within the community to promote Eating Healthy and Moving More. To learn more about the exciting projects we worked on in the Quad Cities Area check out the PICH Grant page!

Be Healthy QC Coalition

The Be Healthy QC Coalition was formed in 2013 and seeks to align all sectors of our bi-state community on program, policy, systems and environmental changes in order to create a “culture of wellness” that supports healthy eating and active living. More information about this group can be found on the Be Healthy QC Coalition page.

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 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.
