We are one of twenty six counties working on the Iowa Community Transformation grant. This grant focuses on improving cardiovascular health through worksite wellness, improving walkability and bike-ability in the community, healthy eating initiatives, smoke-free multi-unit housing, promoting routine screenings and more. If you are a business, restaurant, or convenience store and would like to participate to make positive changes to help improve the health of our community contact Lindsay Remick, Wellness Coordinator at 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.
