Fields of Green
Healthy habits that can last a lifetime start at home and in schools. With this in mind, ProMedica launched the Fields of Green initiative in 2008 to raise awareness about proper nutrition and exercise and to increase access to healthier food in under-served areas. Fields of Green is an umbrella for a variety of education, health and nutritional programs developed by ProMedica.
Past community programs have included: the Let’s Move program, which focuses on raising healthier children; the Healthy Kids Conversation Map® Program, which empowers elementary children and their parents to make good decisions about eating and physical activity; and, most recently, by examining the issue of hunger and its effects on the health and well-being of the communities we serve.
Through Fields of Green, ProMedica is planting seeds of health for today and tomorrow.
ProMedica supports a variety of educational programs that are designed to raise awareness about proper nutrition and exercise and to increase access to healthier food in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan communities.
