Join Healthy Marin Partnership in
Thinking Upstream!

The Healthy Marin Partnership recognizes that it is more effective to address health problems “upstream” and create a community that supports healthy choices, rather than trying to change established behaviors “downstream” after years of behaviors that have led to chronic disease. Through community engagement and compassionate leadership, social, cultural and physical environments in which individual choices are made can be redefined.

We encourage and challenge you to consider your own sphere of influence in Thinking Upstream! Consider the effect you can have in your personal and professional community in changing policies, practices and organizational beliefs that can impact the environment in which individual choices are made.
