While it is sometimes daunting to consider Sullivan County’s poor performance in the County Health Rankings, we know that the health of the county will not turn around just by the work of one institution or one initiative and that it is a long term process. The ranking reflects, in part, the overall health of thousands of individuals throughout the County. We know that improving our health ranking will require changes in our health behaviors. Some of the basic components of living healthier are; a healthy diet, exercise, managing stress and also supportive social connections.
Through the Sullivan Club 180 campaign, a grassroots effort, we are offering an easy way for everyone to participate in turning our health around. It takes everyone to make a change, no matter how small. Small changes can have big results in your overall health and that of our entire community. We are encouraging you to take charge of your own health and promote healthy living in your community by joining or creating a Sullivan Club 180 healthy living group.
