PRINCETON, New Jersey — The New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute today announced the Mayors Wellness Campaign “Healthy Town” winners for 2022. These cities and towns improve health and wellness in their communities through innovative programs in areas such as exercise, healthy eating, and mental health education and awareness.

The Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) is a program of the Quality Institute in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities. In addition to fourteen Healthy Town winners, another seventeen towns were designated as 2022Healthy Town to Watch,” and seven were designated as 2022 “Healthy Town Up-and-Coming.”  

Each year, communities participating in the MWC complete a comprehensive Healthy Town application outlining the research they’ve done to identify their community health needs and explaining how they have organized their local MWC committee. The application also highlights the actions the towns have taken to make their communities healthier places to live, work, and play.

Here’s the full announcement, containing a listing of the winners and the efforts that helped them receive this recognition.
