Bridges to Wellness is a network of medical providers, business and community leaders working together to improve community health. The network advocates for the prevention of chronic disease. We divide our work into two buckets, Health System Integration and Health Promotion.

Health System Integration focuses on issues of health service delivery to improve patient outcomes. Currently, Bridges to Wellness has identified three systems to address:

  • Meaningful use of Health Information Technology 
  • Diabetes prevention, treatment and education
  • Mental Health Services

  • Health Promotion is our consumer outreach to impact the HealthStyle of individuals. Promoting the adoption of healthy living practices (HealthStyle) is an effective method for improving health outcomes and slowing the growth of health care costs. Our Health Promotion efforts include:

  • WELLFEST! a Day In Motion, celebrating physical activity and the pursuit of great health.
  • Eat Better. Move More. Healthy in Action, a community-wide initiative encouraging individuals to join or form teams with the goal of improving their health.
