The Bristol Health Equity Zone (HEZ) is a Bristol Parks and Recreation initiative funded through the RI Department of Health by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to create innovative approaches that can reduce and manage chronic diseases, promote healthy lifestyles, assure healthy child development, and create environments where healthy choices are easier to make. Bristol’s HEZ brings together existing organizations, stakeholders, and partners that focus on the health and well-being of the community into a more formalized, sustainable collaborative.
