About Healthiest Maryland
As the nation and the state implement sweeping health reforms to increase access to health care for more Maryland families and their businesses, the Maryland Health Quality and Cost Council recognized that improving health and containing rising health care costs demands that maximizing prevention is a top priority. The Healthiest Maryland movement aims to engage leaders to commit to maximizing Marylanders' well-being by implementing a comprehensive, coordinated strategy to promote health where Marylanders work, live, and learn. Starting with Healthiest Maryland Businesses, the initial goal is to engage 75 businesses who employ 50,000 Marylanders by December 2010. We envision a Healthiest Maryland, where the healthiest choice is easy.
