Together, let’s make Iowa
the healthiest state in the nation.

According to the 2015 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index®, Iowa is #14 in the nation when it comes to being physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy. Our ranking has moved higher since the Initiative was announced, but our overall well-being score has been fairly constant the past five years. To claim the #1 spot, we have work to do. It’s an ambitious goal, but with your help, we can change Iowa and show the rest of the nation the road to wellness. Take the pledge to create a
healthier, happier Iowa today!
