Healthy Polk Plan

The Results Are In...

Thousands of people in Polk County shared their vision of priorities that will improve the health and well being of Polk County's diverse population. Those priorities—chosen for their emphasis on leading the community in a more healthful direction—are the focus of the Healthy Polk 2020 plan.

For Healthy Polk 2020, more than 2,000 people provided input during community conversations, phone and online surveys, and a community caucus. Representatives of private, public, and non-profit organizations were involved. As a result, 200 potential priorities were identified that were eventually narrowed down to a list of 10 priorities.
