SUMMARY

Recognizing the powerful and inseparable linkage between economic success and health, a collaborative initiative called THRIVE has been born in the Great Lakes Bay Region (GLBR). Focusing on delivering improved health and sustained economic growth, THRIVE is steered by two established organizations: the Michigan Health Improvement Alliance (MiHIA) and the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance (GLBRA).

After compiling a significant amount of data, gaining perspectives from community leaders across multiple sectors, completing system mapping, and modeling scenarios, the THRIVE portfolio is complete. Faith-based leaders, regional nonprofits, health systems, universities, chambers, and regional corporations helped to identify five strategic priority areas to guide the THRIVE Portfolio with three macro health and economic success outcome indicators.

Considering the scale of the THRIVE initiative, the five  priority areas of focused interventions have been organized into 34 specific interventions. Implemented in a multi-phased approach, the interventions were chosen carefully based on community input and data. Recognizing the need for sustained financial support, the Health & Well-being Fund was developed to interweave funding sources for specific interventions and identify opportunities to increase investments.

PATH TO IMPLEMENTATION

The strategic planning work of THRIVE has been completed
and the transition to implementation is underway.
