Fueling healthy economic development

In the small city of Brockton, Mass., LISC has been working closely with local leaders to revitalize an abandoned commercial site with a new grocery store and health center focused on improving the health of nearby residents. Vicente's Tropical Supermarket and Brockton Neighborhood Health Center are developing adjacent facilities and joint programs that address chronic health challenges. The new grocery store celebrated its grand opening last week; the health center will open later this summer.
