The Indiana Healthy Community Initiative from the Wellness Council

of Indiana recently received one of 10 national awards as part of the U.S.

The U.S. Chamber Foundation announced the winners of the

Healthy10 Awards on February 16 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.

professor of wellness at Ball State University and senior fellow at the

Project for Public Spaces.
