The Health Council staff supports Health Council, community action teams, and partner organizations in their health and wellness endeavors to better the quality of life using the community wellness model.
The Health Council is a diverse group of county leaders appointed by the Grant County Commission to serve as a health and wellness planning authority. The Health Council helps coordinate the efforts of the community to fill health and wellness gaps/needs.
The council lends its support and backing to the community's efforts to better itself, resulting in programs like the Medication Assistance Program (MAP), First Born Program, Una Mano Amiga Cancer Patient Navigators, the Volunteer Center and Grant County Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities; all of which were formed by the Health Council and its community partners to better serve the specific needs of our community.
