The Towns of Bladensburg, Colmar Manor, Cottage City, and Edmonston, MD
Good health is more than the absence of illness. The conditions in which people live,
work and play can have a significant impact on health. Everyone should have access
to affordable fresh fruits and vegetables. There should be safe and easy paths to
walk or bike to school, to work, to the store and to the park. We believe good health
belongs to everyone.
The Port Towns Community Health Partnership (PTCHP) is a collaboration of community
residents, organizations and funders, all working together to support healthy living
in the Port Towns. Our partners include Port Towns youth and adult residents, schools,
non-profit organizations, businesses, neighborhoods, local government leaders, The
Port Towns Community Development Corp, Kaiser Permanente, Consumer Health Foundation,
the Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation and United Way of the National Capital Area.
Working closely with the community, the Partnership serves as a catalyst for community
action that promotes healthy eating and active living or HEAL. The Partnership aims
to make the Port Towns the best place for its residents to live, learn, work and
play. Together we can help shape the important decisions that affect our ability
to be a healthy, livable and thriving community. We all have an important role to
play in promoting total community wellness. To find out more about PTCHP visit www.porttowns-chp.org
