Healthy Harnett -a Healthy Carolinians Partnership
Healthy Harnett has sponsored a series of programs throughout Harnett County communities including Medicine Safety programs at senior centers, Promoting healthy snack choices for children at ballparks, Faithful Families which works with faith communities to provide families with skills needed to eat healthier foods and encourages being physically active and the SISTA Project which provides educational sessions to reduce the risk behaviors related to HIV/AIDS.
Healthy Harnett has identified focus areas, established objectives and targets, and developed action plans and interventions that will improve the health of people in Harnett County. In order for Healthy Harnett to receive recertification, the partnership must submit an extensive application to the Governorís Task Force for Healthy Carolinians. The Governorís Task Force has developed a set of rigorous standards, based on community health improvement, which all partnerships must meet in order to be certified or recertified.
