    Our mission, to connect local residents and businesses to Health and Wellness resources.

     

    With a strong demographic of Health & Wellness businesses in West Hartford and a health conscious community, this committee serves to find ways to connect these local businesses with each other and residents. Chamber members in various Health & Wellness industries have a great opportunity for referrals to one another through Chamber events and meetings. This committee also discusses pertinent topics and presents this information in the form of articles that may be featured in the "Weekly View" or in a member seminar.This committee also has the ability to speak in both personal capacities and large corporate settings on wellness topics.
