THRIVE

To deliver improved health and sustained economic growth in our communities.

Leaders from across the Great Lakes Bay Region recognize the powerful and inseparable linkage between economic success and health. The region’s health will be much greater with a strong regional economy which is in turn, only possible with a healthy population.

The Michigan Health Improvement Alliance, Inc. (MiHIA) and the Great Lakes Bay Regional Alliance (GLBRA) are collaborating to co-lead the THRIVE initiative to bring high-value impact & benefit to our community citizens, and other regional organizations and institutions. Due to the unique work and transformative nature of our mission, and the full engagement of sectors for support, THRIVE has caught the attention of national and state thought leaders, and established foundations as we build our region into one of health excellence and sustained economic growth.

THE PATH TO IMPLEMENTATION

The strategic planning work of THRIVE has
been completed and the transition to implementation is underway.

PORTFOLIO INTERVENTIONS

Interventions in the Portfolio were reviewed against criteria to ensure strategy alignment, implementation feasibility and cost effectiveness. The combined portfolio of all five strategic areas was then run through a simulation model and analytics in order to project impact and expected outcomes on numerous metrics over a twenty year horizon.
