B-Well Bensenville Plan4Health Coalition

The B-Well Bensenville Project (Illinois) has worked to address physical inactivity, with a focus on the needs of low-income and Hispanic residents — the city’s most vulnerable populations. Efforts have included short-term solutions like raising awareness about new physical activity opportunities within the community and longer-term policy and environmental changes to increase physical activity levels in the community.

“The APA project has allowed coalition members the opportunity to learn about policy and environmental changes related to Complete Streets and Active Transportation. Once the project is complete, all of Bensenville’s future planning decisions will include considerations for health-a huge success for the Village and its residents.”
– Becky McFarland, DuPage County Health Department.
