Well City Challenge is Back, with a Call for Community-driven Health Projects

The Well City Challenge is back.

Two years ago, the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross launched the innovation contest by asking for ideas to boost millennial health across three categories: community and social connection, food and nutrition, and mind/body health. Hey, Auntie!, an online platform that connects intergenerational Black women in Philadelphia around mentorship and personal development, took home the first-place spot, plus $50,000 toward building up the platform.

Now, the Economy League, IBX and new partner Accelerate Health Equity (AHE) are revamping the program for its second go. The organizations launched the 2023 Well City Challenge this past weekend with the theme “Community Solutions for Mind and Heart Health.”
