D10 Wellness Collaborative

The District 10 Wellness Collaborative was launched over five years ago when then Supervisor Sophie Maxwell allocated funding for chronic disease prevention in District 10. Additional resources have been identified since then, but the original vision has remained the same.

The main goal of the collaborative is to provide fun, accessible, free and healthy activities for District 10 residents.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health has partnered with many organizations engaged in work around healthy eating, physical activity, stress reduction, and health equity to fund and coordinate these activities. Current partners include the Black Coalition on AIDS, Bayview YMCA, Potrero Hill Health Center's Healing Project, and the Potrero Hill public housing's Healthy Living program.

We are excited to see more residents of District 10 moving and grooving, eating healthy, getting acupuncture, and connecting with each other.

The D10 Wellness Collaborative develops and distributes a monthly calendar in order to keep residents in the loop about activities that are happening in their neighborhoods. Keep your eye out for it right here in Footprints.
