Healthy Pontiac, We Can

The Healthy Pontiac, We Can! coalition (HPWC!) began in 2011, through a planning grant from the Michigan Department of Community Health's Building Health Communities program.

2021 HPWC Meeting Schedule


HPWC! strives to bring health-related initiatives to improve the health and quality of life for Pontiac residents. The three focus areas include:

  • Healthy eating
  • Physical activity
  • Tobacco-Free living


The HPWC! completed a comprehensive assessment of factors that influence health-related behaviors in Pontiac. The coalition developed a 3-year Strategic Action Plan to address some of the most pressing health issues facing Pontiac residents. The coalition has sought grant funding to implement these initiatives.


A diverse coalition includes leaders in primary and preventive health care, mental health, human service agencies, education, the religious community, and governmental agencies in addition to local residents. New partners are always welcome!​
