together... learning. caring. strengthening. protecting.

Healthy Henry County Communities and Henry County Health Center celebrate the first year of the Your Plate. Your Health. program. This partnership helps restaurant owners identify and better promote their healthy menu choices so that the healthy choice becomes the easy choice.

Congratulations to the first four restaurants in Henry County to achieve this designation: Short Stop, Tazza Bella Coffee Lounge and Cafe, Mt. Pleasant Golf & Country Club and Pad Thai.

Healthy eating is an initiative of the Iowa Community Transformation Grant made possible with funding in part through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To learn more about how you can get involved in healthy eating initiatives or if your restaurant would like to be a part of this program please call 319.385.6595.

Living, working and learning - they are all part of being a community. Keeping the members of that community healthy is the goal of several innovative programs. Using workplace, school and public settings, Community Wellness programs offer information, education and motivation for residents of all ages to improve their life through healthy choices.

  • Healthy Workplaces:
    Brings health screenings and educational programs directly to workers at their job sites.
  • Recreation Trails:
