What's Good for Health is Good for Business: Engaging the Business Community in Prevention Efforts

This Resource Guide from the Prevention Institute is for public health departments and coalitions outlines the steps involved in forging successful community prevention partnerships with local businesses. It is designed to support community prevention leaders as they develop coalitions and engage local businesses in prevention efforts to improve employee and resident access to healthy food, physical activity, and tobacco-free environments.

Many prevention efforts have successfully included businesses as coalition members, partners, or leaders in creating change. This guide highlights examples of fruitful public health-business partnerships, explores the basis for their success, and provides insights on how to replicate these successes elsewhere.
