“The Partnership for Chronic Disease tells us nearly half of all deaths in the United States could have been avoided simply by getting a regular physical,” said Randy Van Straten, Bellin Health vice president of Business Health Solutions. “We have the tools to increase health and wellbeing in our communities, and we know these efforts can make a difference when we have buy-in from employers and other organizations. To be able to help those in need while we work for positive change makes this the perfect community partnership.”Do Good Sturgeon Bay is a win-win for the community and the food pantry, added Michael Huck, CEO of Lakeshore CAP, Inc.
“We have seen an increasing need for supplemental food in Door County, and this program directly addresses that need,” Huck said. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Bellin on this exciting initiative.”
