Community Health Council

The Grant County Community Health Council is another example of our communities' willingness to work together to make good things happen. The Health Council works to enhance the quality of life in Grant County through assessment of its needs, planning and prioritizing, and coordinating of efforts to meet those needs. Recent projects include a county-wide health challenge, fitness and nutrition programs, and securing grants and other funds for healthcare projects in the county. The council also maintains a comprehensive directory of resources available in the community, available on line at the web site above.

The vision of the Health Council is to attain measurable and sustainable improvement of health for all community members. They envision a diverse, active and competent Health Council that serves as a catalyst and resource for improving quality of life in Grant County.

The philosophy of the Health Council is based on a wellness model that encompasses physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, cultural, economic and community well being. Through continuous evaluation, they seek positive development, and efficiency of the Council and our efforts. By serving as a coordination rather than a direct service organization they seek maximum impact and success.
