Working together we can be one of the healthiest counties in California
The Health Leadership Network’s Health Policy Cabinet invites you to better the health of Lake County. Results from the recent county health rankings and community feedback related to the Lake County Community Health Needs Assessment indicate priority health issues we can improve on.
These health issues include creating more opportunities to support healthy eating, physical activity, and emotional health, and ways to reduce smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke. Every positive step we take counts toward bettering our community health.
This is a great opportunity to feel better and have fun getting there. Join or start a walking group, take a cooking class, learn to quit smoking - the possibilities are endless. Lake County ranks in the bottom 5 of 58 California counties for health. We can reach the top 10 of healthy counties if we all work together.
The Project is named to represent step by step progress to the summit of Mount Konocti where the reward of stunning views makes the journey worthwhile.Take a step with your friends and neighbors from all over Lake County. Here are some ideas, information, and resources to get you started:
And, if you have anything you'd like to add - an event to our calendar, a guest blog post, a resource you feel would be useful to the community - just drop an email to the Health Leadership Network Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your efforts towards improving your own life and the lives of others.
Onward and upward!
