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:
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:
A Bridges to Wellness initiative supporting individuals in making the healthstyle change(s) they want to make. The key to better health is eating more balanced meals and getting more exercise. Easy to say, not so easy to do. Eat Better. Move More. participants are encouraged throughout the process to reach the goals they set. Eat Better. Move More. puts healthy in action. Bridges to Wellness will work with area employers to introduce Eat Better. Move More. Learn more about Eat Better. Move More.
WELLFEST! is a call to action from Bridges to Wellness to children, families and communities to get up, get outside and get moving. Most importantly, WELLFEST! is a collection of fun activities and games to encourage participants to rediscover the joys and benefits of being physically active. It’s fun, it’s good for you, it’s WELLFEST!
