 Area health leaders have developed a plan to improve the health of Pierce County, but they still need more help.

Throughout 2013, Pierce County Public Health and River Falls Area Hospital, part of Allina Health completed a health needs assessment for Pierce County.

The process engaged a wide range of citizens to identify and prioritize local health needs.

Physical activity and healthy foods were identified as the top priorities for Pierce County.

When developing a three-year plan to address these priorities, the focus was kept on national research showing “what works.”

The 2014-2016 Pierce County Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Plan is available online at www.co.pierce.wi.us  and www.allinahealth.org.

To get involved or to learn more about the action plan, contact Amy Hess, RD, Pierce County Public Health at amy.hess@co.pierce.wi.us.
