Our success wouldn’t be possible without the work and commitment of our Steering Committee! These partners build the strategies that are leading to healthier communities across Southwest Michigan. Be Healthy Berrien uses a Collective Impact model – meaning that every one of our partners has committed to working together toward our Shared Vision and making changes in their organization to lead the way to healthier communities.
United Way of Southwest Michigan has been a Be Healthy Berrien partner from the very beginning in 2010! UWSM is Be Healthy Berrien’s backbone agency – providing the day-to-day support needed to put our plans into action. UWSM acts as the fiduciary and employer of record for our staff. Rachel Wade, Vice President of Strategy at UWSM, provides great leadership on the Be Healthy Berrien Steering Committee and works hard at connecting Be Healthy Berrien’s goals with UWSM’s goals. Rachel is wonderful at creating personal connections and building relationships with our project partners to build Be Healthy Berrien’s Network of Support.
