Emerging Public Health Initiatives: Culture of Health

Our health is greatly influenced by complex factors such where we live, and the strength of our families and communities. But despite knowing this, positive change is not occurring at a promising pace. To accelerate progress, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has proposed the Culture of Health Framework to accelerate progress toward a future where everyone has the opportunity to live a healthier life.

Together, these action items promote improved population health, well-being and equity measured by individual and community well-being, preventing and treating chronic disease and reducing the cost of health care.  Learn more at: Robert Wood’s Johnson, Building a Culture of Health.

Lake Cumberland District Health Department aspires to work with community partners as we become our communities’ “chief health strategists” while facilitating Community Health Improvement Plans. For more information on these efforts, visit LCDHD: Health Assessments, Analyses and Statistics.
