The Self-Managed healthy lifestyle focus is geared towards Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Tobacco Cessation, as well as self-managing Chronic Illnesses. Many organizations in East Chicago are partnering with the six original Network Collaborators: Catholic Charities, East Chicago Parks and Recreation, HealthVisions Midwest, Healthy East Chicago, Salvation Army and St. Catherine Hospital.
