The MWC is a program of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute in partnership with the NJ League of Municipalities and supports Mayors as champions of community health. The mission of the Mayors Wellness Committee of the Chathams is to equip mayors and other key leaders with the tools to develop and implement active-living initiatives in their communities with the ultimate goal of improving health and reducing the skyrocketing health care costs that come with the these preventable health concerns in New Jersey.

The MWC meets each month to discuss ways that residents can get involved in community programs that contribute to improved health and wellness.
