HSI Wellness Subcommittee PDF Print E-mail

The Healthy Siouxland Initiative Wellness Subcommittee was formed in the spring of 2011 after completion of the Woodbury County Health Improvement Plan.  The goal of this subcommittee is to prevent an increase in obesity rates within Woodbury County through a variety of strategies dealing with nutrition and physical activity.

The strategies that will be used to help meet the goal are:

  • Enhancing worksite wellness program within Woodbury County through the collaboration of the Worksite Wellness Council, Live Healthy Siouxland webpage and the 100 Day Wellness Challenge.
  • Promoting policy and programming within the child and youth population within Woodbury County through the BASICS and EFNEP program, WIC, and implementation of the Healthy Kids Act in area school systems.
  • Promotion of local foods through Regional Flavors and Farmers Market.
  • Lack of resources (finances and transportation) and supporting individuals in making healthy choices when seeking out a food supply, including use of the Food Bank of Siouxland and other associated food pantries.
