2023 Live Healthy Fairfax Awards
The Partnership for a Healthier Fairfax (PFHF) annually invites nominations for the Live Healthy Fairfax Awards to recognize outstanding examples of policy, system and environmental change strategies supporting healthy practices to improve health and well-being of individuals as addressed in the Partnership’s Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
Purpose and Benefits
The Live Healthy Fairfax Awards recognizes individuals, businesses, and organizations – both public and private – that have demonstrated exemplary leadership and action to improve the health and well-being of individuals, families, and populations in the Fairfax Health District. The Fairfax Health District is defined as Fairfax County (including the incorporated towns of Clifton, Herndon and Vienna), Fairfax City, and the City of Falls Church.
The awards are particularly intended to recognize those who go “above and beyond” – e.g., individuals who volunteer to lead major initiatives, businesses that provide employees and customers with health-related opportunities, or agencies that implement programs or practices supporting healthy choices. Also celebrated are efforts that impact the larger community and that can serve as models for others to follow.
One Live Healthy Fairfax Award will be offered in each of the three categories that align with the current CHIP areas of focus:
- Behavioral Health: Promoting social and emotional wellness for all.
- Healthy Eating (Fairfax Food Council): Promoting the accessibility, availability and affordability of healthy eating for all.
- Healthy Environment and Active Living: Improving the community environment to support active living and good health for all.
Awards will be presented at an upcoming PFHF Meeting. Award recipients will also be recognized on the county website and in the PFHF Newsletter.
