County’s plan: To your good health

 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  and
