City of Vincennes to Host Active Living Workshop

The city of Vincennes, in partnership with Good Samaritan, has been selected to host an active living workshop. 

The city of Vincennes, in partnership with Good Samaritan, has been selected to host an active living workshop. Health by Design and the Indiana State Department of Health are partnering to present a series of workshops designed to help communities throughout the state become healthier, more active and accessible.  The program is for all ages and abilities. The Active Living Workshop Grant, valued at $6,500,is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vincennes was one of five communities in Indiana selected through a competitive application process to host a workshop between July 2016 and June 2017. The workshop will gather leaders from all different areas of the community to learn about active-living communities and to discuss strategies that can be used to help Vincennes become more active. The workshop will also include an assessment of the city’s sidewalks and roads for the purpose of giving community members a better environment.

The City of Vincennes and Good Samaritan have partnered to host this workshop because both want to explore new ways to better the health of the community. Vincennes Mayor Joe called it an exciting time as the city and Good Samaritan partner in and effort to build a strong, active, healthy community for all

The one-day workshop’s date has yet to be announced.
