What Does it Take to Build a Culture of Health?

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Recently Julie Willems Van Dijk, co-director of the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, moderated a Google+ Hangout exploring how local communities are building a Culture of Health. Joining her were representatives from three RWJF Culture of Health Prize communities: Cambridge, Massachusetts; Spokane County, Washington; and Williamson, West Virginia.

During the 45 minute discussion, they offered an overview of their efforts, lessons learned, and insights on what winning the prize has meant to their community. Watch here.

If your community is working to build a Culture of Health, consider applying for the 2015 RWJF Culture of Health Prize.  Applications are due September 17, 2014.
