OUR VISION FOR A HEALTHY SULLIVAN COUNTY
or the past several years, Sullivan County has been ranked 61 out of 62 counties in the state of New York by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation County Health Rankings. Sullivan County residents are eager to start turning this ranking around.
SULLIVAN 180 is a vehicle to foster and support community efforts to improve the health of all residents.
Our goal as a 501(c)3 is to turn this ranking around by 180 degrees. With the understanding that this is a long term effort, SULLIVAN 180 is committed to change by degrees, the kind of slow, steady and enduring transformation that is thoughtfully conceived and implemented.
here is a clear need to offer our residents opportunities for improving their health and prosperity. This encompasses not only physical but also mental, spiritual and environmental wellness. A sense of purpose; connection to family and community; access to fresh food; and an active lifestyle are all essential for a thriving Sullivan County. SULLIVAN 180 works in all these areas offering an inclusive approach that unites the entire community— businesses, organizations and individuals in healthcare, education, agriculture, government, the arts and faith-based institutions. Together, with our community partners, we address immediate health concerns and promote innovative ways for all of our residents to live a healthier lifestyle.
