United Way — Live United
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. A healthy community is one that is continuously creating and improving those physical and social environments and expanding those community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and in developing to their maximum potential.” -World Health Organization
We all want Lane County to be a healthy place to live and learn, work and play.
Lane County has a strong foundation for a healthy community. Built around abundant natural resources, collaboration across organizations, hardworking residents, caring neighborhoods, and innovation; we are proud of these assets, but there is still much work to be done.
Live Healthy Lane is a collaborative project between United Way of Lane County, Lane County Public Health, PeaceHealth, Trillium Community Health Plan, and community partners that consists of a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The goal of this work is to improve the Lane County community's mental, physical, social and economic health. Reducing health disparities, promoting health equity and improving overall population health is the central purpose of the health assessment and health improvement planning effort.
