The second year of Healthy Lucas County’s chronic disease prevention and management project is under way after reporting on the first year of funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Partnerships to Improve Community Health program was completed. The project is comprised of three initiatives:
- Smoke-free environments: Click here for the more details of this Toledo-Lucas County Health Department effort, which included helping 21 multi-unit housing complexes adopt smoke-free policies.
- Healthy corner stores: Click here for more details of this Eat Fresh, Live Well effort, which included establishing a produce distribution network and adding nine stores.
- Clinical-community linkages: Click here for more details of this Northwest Ohio Pathways HUB effort, which includes training nine community health workers who enrolled 55 low-income clients.
