In 2014 WRAG’s Health Working Group changed its name to the Healthy Communities Working Group to better reflect the fact that community development, housing, education, food security, income, and the neighborhoods where people live, work, and play have more to do with the health of people and communities than medical care. In 2015 we developed a theory of change to help us make Greater Washington a region where communities across all jurisdictions are thriving, and all people are living their lives to their fullest potential.
