How We Succeed

BWC will achieve this vision by bringing together community groups and individuals to improve the health and well being for all those living and working in Brunswick County. Working across all sectors, including healthcare, government, business and industry, human services, community service agencies, educational institutions, the faith community, and the general population, we will share resources and support to prevent disease and promote health.

The Brunswick Wellness Coalition began through a Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas grant, an initiative of The Duke Endowment.
