There’s a 21st Century saying that goes, “if you don’t exist in social media…you don’t exist!” That hasn’t necessarily been a problem for the Healthy Richmond Initiative, which nevertheless stands to gain some good visibility after their launch this month of a new website,

The site is a one-stop shop for vast amounts of information about community health campaigns and policy initiatives occurring in Richmond. It will also serve as the official face, and for many an introduction, to the work of a group of community-based organizations known collectively as the Healthy Richmond Hub.

Hosted at the East Bay Center for Performing Arts, the website launch brought together Hub partners such as Richmond Main Street, RYSE Center, Richmond Community Foundation and Brookside Health Center, among other groups. Partners were able to explore the site for the first time, where readers can access information about the Healthy Richmond Hub’s origin, its model structure, various campaigns it is involved in, and links to the member organization’s websites and Facebook pages.
