Description

Introducing Wild, Wonderful, Healthy WV

Southern WV Regional Meeting | Chief Logan State Park | June 18th 1- 4:00 p.m.

Communities in Southern WV are welcomed to this regional meeting to introduce Wild, Wonderful, Healthy WV. Each community is asked to send representatives to learn more about the initiative and to take home stories.

BACKGROUND:
West Virginia has stark health disparities when compared to the rest of the nation. These health disparities impact our residents daily and negatively impact our state’s economic development potential. Improving West Virginia’s health statistics will not be determined by state action alone, but rather the collective actions of West Virginia’s community leaders. Creating a culture of health in our communities will require community residents, leaders and organizations work across sectors to collectively identify priorities and take coordinated action to implement sustainable systems changes and policy-oriented long-term solutions.

Improving the health statistics of a community, region and eventually the state, will be successful if we support leaders in communities throughout West Virginia in building diverse and robust partnerships across business, government, health care, and residents to address the social determinants of health community-by-community.

Through cross-sector collaboration we will work with local communities to create a culture of health by developing strategies and programs to create community environments that support residents, employees, children and others to have the opportunity for health and well-being through living healthy lifestyles that build upon West Virginia’s culture and history.
