Westwood "Healthy Town 2017"
In 2017, Westwood pledged their participation in the Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC). Mayor John Birkner, Jr. joined over 350 Mayors who are playing a leadership role in supporting local opportunities for active, healthy lifestyles.
The MWC is an initiative of the NJ Healthcare Quality Institute. Since 2006, the MWC has sought to develop and implement active living programs through local leaders and in doing so, to reduce health care costs and foster active living and healthy lifestyles for NJ citizens.
The mission of the MWC is to equip mayors and other key leaders with the tools to develop and implement active-living initiatives in their communities with the ultimate goal of improving health and reducing the skyrocketing health care costs that come with the obesity problem in New Jersey.
