Objective: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center (CCC) and its supporters know that healthy communities are vital to economic growth. Each year, we hold a learning tour to see first-hand how innovations in corporate citizenship are happening on the ground. In 2016, we will hold an “Accelerating a Healthy America” learning tour in Minneapolis-St Paul to enable corporate citizenship practitioners to visit model community wellness programs with their peers, and to discuss challenges and solutions to implementing these programs.
