Alabama consistently ranks low in the United States for poor health outcomes which indicates higher than national rates of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and preventable disease. Our mission is to solve complex problems by utilizing our resources and coalition partners to improve healthy living and the capacity for individuals and communities to achieve optimal health. Our goal is that by 2025, all Central Alabama counties will be ranked in the top 10 in Alabama for health outcomes as measured by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
KEY STRATEGIES INCLUDE:
- Improve health equity in local areas with higher rates of poor health outcomes by removing barriers to healthy living.
- Promote physical well-being through healthy lifestyles by supporting smoke free policies, reducing high rates of obesity, improving access to healthy food, and encouraging physical activity.
- Increase access to healthcare and mental health services and empower people to use those services.
