T.E.A.M. UP! Greater Cleveland, powered by the Force for Health® Network, is a collaborative community network and platform specifically built to support community health improvement initiatives and healthy workforce for thriving economic environments where individuals live, work, and play.
On November 2, 2016, over 100 participants from the business sector and community converged at a forum entitled, “Engaging Greater Cleveland Businesses for a Healthier Generation,” to discuss strategies for preventing obesity and promoting wellness throughout Greater Cleveland. A business panel of six representatives served as the convening panel hearing from 6 panels spotlighting work in Greater Cleveland in the following areas: research/data, early childhood, schools, providers, community organizations, and businesses. The dialogue underscored the range of programs underway to help tackle childhood obesity and highlighted the interest from the business community to become increasingly engaged in these efforts. The convening made it clear – the time is right to pursue stronger partnerships across sectors. It was also clear that businesses are primed to be part of the conversations and initiatives to establish lasting and impactful outcomes. The private sector can play a pivotal role in elevating existing programs, helping launch new ones and in connecting skilled individuals and organizations committed to helping Greater Cleveland children grow and lead healthy and productive lives.
