Health:  Vital Connections for Mainers

We all want to be healthy.  Poor health weakens our families, communities and economy.  At Maine Rural Partners, we’re not waiting for the federal government to decide our fate.  We believe in connecting wellness advocates and growing solutions from within. 

Health status is closely linked to nutrition, environment and economic means. So we prioritize solutions that build on our local assets and keep the dollars at home.  Promoting access to fresh, local food has arisen as a key strategic focus of our work, given its far-reaching benefits across the Food-Energy-Health-Wealth spectrum.

There are many challenges to be tackled.  If you are a health professional or advocate, please visit and join the Maine Rural Health Network to connect with others who working hard to advance good health and a strong economy.
