Healthy Lifestyles Network

Marshfield Clinic Center for Community Health Advancement formed the Healthy Lifestyles Network to share best practices of the Healthy Lifestyles-Marshfield Area Coalition that started in 2001.  The network began with coalitions from within the Marshfield Clinic Health System service area and has expanded to include members from all of Wisconsin.
