Quad City Health Initiative

The Quad City Health Initiative is celebrating 20 years of helping the community. Wednesday it held a program to recognize its accomplishments.


There's good news and bad news when it comes to the health of Quad Cities residents. Results of the latest survey by the Quad City Health Initiative show the number of smokers continues to fall, but too many of us are over-weight.

Be Healthy Quad Cities


Some local governments, schools, and businesses are being recognized for promoting healthy eating and exercise in the workplace. Last week, the Quad City Health Initiative announced ten organizations have earned the title of a Be Healthy QC Workplace. 

An effort that began 16 years ago has won some national recognition. The Quad Cities is one of 15 finalists for the 3rd annual Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize.
