Mayoral Health Council

The Vicksburg Mayoral Health Council (VMHC) was established by the City of Vicksburg in January, 2014 with grant funding from the MS Department of Health. Through policy and environmental system changes which support increased access to physical activity, healthy foods and reduced exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke, the Mayoral Council works to reduce the prevalence of heart disease and stroke, and to engage key community stakeholders to enact policies which support the reduction of risk factors for heart disease and stroke.
