Healthy People Taylor County

A Community Health Plan

Adequate & Appropriate Nutrition - Overweight, Obesity & Lack of Physical Activity
Access to Primary & Preventative Health Care
Alcohol & Other Substance Use & Addiction

This site is a result of the collaboration of community partners who developed a plan for community organizations, local government, businesses, and citizens to take action to become a “Healthier Taylor County” for everyone who lives in our community. This plan identifies priorities, goals, and strategies for identified areas to assist us with attaining a “healthy community." The plan will have no impact on our community unless we take an interest in the plan, take action collectively, and commit to reach the goals addressed.
