Your ZIP code could impact your health more than your genetic code.
The Healthy HometownSM program, POWERED BY Wellmark, is a way to make your hometown an even better place to live. Healthy Hometown aims to make the healthy choice, the easy choice, using evidence-based interventions and tools.
Every school has different health priorities, as well as people and budgets to put plans into action. Healthy Hometown can be customized easily for your school’s level of interest and commitment.
The Healthy Hometown model has two tracks that schools can follow to make improvements: eat well, move more and feel better.
2 Ways. Your Work. Your Pace.
Do a self-assessment. The self-assessment tool is available online for schools. Participants answer questions about their school and policies in place. At the end of the assessment, participants will receive a report listing ways to enhance the well-being of their students, and staff.
Ask for help from experts. A school can submit a Healthy Hometown Statement of Interest for expert assistance in prioritizing and implementing a plan to make healthy choices available and easy for residents to adopt.
