About Us

Founded in 2002 by civic leader Mitzi Perdue, Healthy U Delmarva has made a great impact in the Tri-County area and helped to promote healthy lifestyle changes to our local communities. At the beginning of this year, Healthy U became part of Salisbury University 's affiliated outreach network. "As the new home of Healthy U, Salisbury University is proud to promote healthy lifestyles and to uphold the legacy of Mitzi Perdue, a true civic leader and friend to our region and this campus," said SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach. Mitzi Perdue is just as excited about the change. "Having Salisbury University in charge of Healthy U is, for me, a dream come true," said Perdue. "The University, with its ability to provide academic rigor to the study of community health improvement, will be able to take Healthy U to a much higher level than any individual ever could."
