The Get Healthy North Country portal includes basic information about each workshop as well as a one-step registration process. Most current workshops include six sessions and offer a mix of web, in-person, and phone options, all free to attendees. In addition to Get Healthy North Country, the Chronic Disease Prevention Coalition has established a regional program delivery and referral network through its partnership with NY Connects that helps providers provide their patients with timely access to programs evidence-based throughout the North Country.

In 2021, the Coalition has grown from Clinton, Essex, and Franklin counties to include health care provider organizations, regional offices for seniors, and other community organizations in Hamilton, Washington counties. , Warren and St.Lawrence. This is in addition to several new regional and national stakeholders who have taken an interest in our work.

“This coalition will continue to build its referral network and begin taking steps to prepare to contract with healthcare payers to support the continued delivery of these important programs,” Morgan said.

The Coalition is represented by organizations in five different sectors: primary care systems, behavioral health systems, state and regional actors, technical assistance and public health. For a full list of partners, visit
