Live Healthy Appalachia Healthy Food VISTA
 
 
 
Live Healthy Appalachia (LHA) is an Athens, Ohio-based nonprofit organization which aims to promote health and wellbeing in our Appalachian region through outreach, education, and advocacy emphasizing nutrition and physical activity. LHA’s programs support the idea that good health is a right, not a privilege. LHA’s VISTA will work to increase the capacity of healthy living programs in Athens County and surrounding areas in Southeast Ohio. The VISTA will focus on goals that help LHA reach a wider network of individuals in need of access to healthy foods and nutrition education, including 1) helping build organizational capacity through development of new engagement tools and strategic communication, 2) establishing new partnerships that bridge gaps in access to healthy food, 3) researching strategies that address and encourage volunteer and donor retention.
