Make your community a Healthy HotSpot!

What is Healthy HotSpot?

Healthy HotSpot is an initiative aiming to make suburban Cook County healthier one spot at a time through partnerships for healthy living.

As part of the Healthy HotSpot initiative, the Cook County Department of Public Health and Active Transportation Alliance are teaming up to provide technical assistance to  suburban Cook County communities through adoption of Complete Streets approaches and active transportation plans.

Participating communities will learn how to design, build and maintain streets that promote walking, biking and public transportation as a way to build more physical activity into peoples’ daily lives.

This project is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through the Healthy HotSpot initiative led by the Cook County Department of Public Health.
