  • About PacificSource Healthy Life

    PacificSource Healthy Life is a community health initiative aimed at improving the health of the communities we serve. Our areas of focus include:

    • Physical activity
    • Healthy eating
    • Stress management
    • Tobacco cessation

    It is our goal to provide our members, businesses, organizations, and people in the communities we serve with the resources, information, tools, support, and motivation they need to live a healthy life.

    By encouraging people to get more exercise, eat better, stop smoking, and reduce their stress levels, we can create real change in the way people live and play in their communities.

    Since its launch, PacificSource Healthy Life has been addressing the wellness and prevention needs of our Oregon communities. With more than 61 percent of Oregon’s adult population reported as overweight or obese, and an additional 43,000 Oregonians becoming obese annually, the time for change is now. Each day we wait puts Oregonians at greater risk of health problems, including heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and certain types of cancer, and places a greater burden on the healthcare system.

    By partnering with local businesses, providers, schools, hospitals, non profits, community leaders, public health agencies, and universities, we can identify the needs of our communities and implement changes to help build healthier places for people to live, work, and play. We aim to inspire positive, sustainable behavior change.
