The WellFinder Initiative, led by the National Wellness Institute (NWI), engages with community and business leaders to assess how to drive economic prosperity for everyone by elevating and scaling their healthy places strategies. WellFinder looks beyond clinical health and economic growth.  At the heart of the initiative is its co-production philosophy, which provides both an activation forum for local decision making aided by subject matter experts in areas of economic development, health, healthcare, and wellness; as well as a social connection point to combat the growing issue of social isolation.   

Utilizing our vast network of experts, specialists, partners, and resources, NWI has developed a strategy to reduce the barriers that limit access to tools that improve health, reduce poverty, cultivate economic vitality, and enhance the overall well-being of all of its residents.
