Healthy Polk 2020

Priority #8

Empower more people to take responsibility for maintaining their health.

A dedicated group of individuals from the areas of health enhancement and promotion spent several months reviewing and analyzing existing efforts to empower people to take responsibility for maintaining their health. Here is a summary of the process by which this priority is being transformed into actionable strategies.

Healthy Polk leaders and stakeholders from the community gathered on May 4, 2012 to consider a proposed action plan and take steps to implement the plan.

 If you, or someone you know, is involved in the arena of health enhancement, wellness or holistic health, and want to be part of efforts to advance this prioity, please contact Chris Frantsvog (email)
