Celebrating 10 Years in Sussex County, Delaware

Celebrating 10 Years and a New Name

Bridgeville, DE (October 28, 2015) - Ten years ago, Sussex County Health Promotion Coalition focused primarily on children’s health promotion in Sussex County. After great successes engaging the community in children’s health in the early years, the Coalition set its sights on improving health and wellness for all of Sussex County citizens. There was a need to address health disparities for children, their families, seniors and the greater community. SCHPC expanded to address the needs of these populations and continues to do so today.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Coalition and on the evening of October 28th, its partners came together to celebrate the past, present and future of the Coalition and its work improving the lives of Sussex Countians. The 10 year celebration was held at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville, where 160 guests enjoyed dinner, a keynote message about the power of partnership from DHSS Secretary Rita Landgraf, and community awards.
