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

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.

Working together to make Henry County, Iowa, a better place to live, work,
and raise a family.


Healthy Henry County Communities brings together many of the area's organizations and resources to help create a better quality of life for all residents by responding to needs and opportunities as they develop in our community.

Healthy Communities is about people: volunteers, community leaders, educators and others working together to help build a stronger, safer, healthier community. The action teams, programs and activities of HHCC are driven by the commitment of local residents to create a positive, healthy environment for everyone in the community.

Through collaboration and innovation, hundreds of people in Henry County have created, sustained, and continue to grow the Healthy Communities coalition.
