The Mission Hill Health Movement (MHHM) works to ensure a livable environment and a healthy quality of life for all our residents. The MHHM addresses the broad issues which affect its neighborhood and to improve the quality of health in Mission Hill.
The MHHM focuses on 4 major areas:
1. Improving health through increasing the availability and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.
2. Supporting Mission Hill residents in preventing and managing chronic illness.
3. Having young adults (22-45) take leadership in promoting community health.
4. Creating a resilient and healthy Mission Hill environment and community.
MHHM participates in community based health advocacy, holding farmers markets, health fairs, health education, and encouraging exercise. Students can volunteer to put together health fairs.
