Living Healthy Washington County strives to make a positive difference in the community by working to create health-friendly policies, programs and resources that make it easier for residents to make healthy choices in their daily routines.
We are excited to announce the launch of the updated livinghealthywc.org. The website features improved navigation, easier access to useful resources, and a more engaging experience for visitors.
Living Healthy Washington County is funded, in part, by a grant from the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), Minnesota Department of Health, a state-based program that works at the local level to support healthier communities by expanding opportunities for active living, healthy eating, well-being and commercial tobacco-free living.
We encourage you to take a look around! Let us know what you think by emailing PHELivingHealthy@co.washington.mn.us.
In 2021, Living Healthy Washington County continued to improve community health with a deepened focus on our new health equity efforts. Community partner projects increased residents’ access to healthy foods, physical activity, mental well-being, and reduced use and exposure to commercial tobacco products.
In 2020, Living Healthy Washington County aligned its work with the Healthy Brain Initiative, focusing specifically on efforts to educate and train professionals. In collaboration with Dementia Partners Woodbury and FamilyMeans, LHWC embarked on training businesses serving older adults to be dementia friendly.
