Laying the Foundation to Improve the Culture of Health in Adams County
According to the 2020 County Health Rankings, Adams County ranks 70th among 72 Wisconsin counties for quality of life, meaning Adams County residents experience poorer mental and physical health days more frequently compared to the average Wisconsin resident. Currently, the Be Healthy Adams County coalition led by the Adams County Health and Human Services Department is working narrowly towards nutrition and physical activity outcomes instead of strategically addressing root cause issues affecting the community. To improve a culture of health, Adams County should focus on supporting multisector collaboration, utilizing strategic planning, and shifting beliefs around health.
