The Newport Health Equity Zone is a city-wide coalition mobilizing residents and resources of the Broadway and North End neighborhoods to make Newport a place where everyone can thrive. We envision a city where:
structural, financial, and environmental barriers to health & well-being are eliminated
public policy fosters the good health of all residents
residents feel empowered to control the health of their families and community
Working Groups will work on 6 areas of community life that are important to health. They will engage residents in guiding and making changes that promote healthier people and places.
