2017 Robert J. Wood Culture of Health Award Winner

Algoma, Wisconsin Honored As 2017 RWJF Culture of Health Prize Winner

Now in its fifth year, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize recognizes communities that have placed a priority on health and are creating powerful partnerships and deep commitments that will enable everyone, especially those facing the greatest barriers to good health, the opportunity to live well.

A Culture of Health recognizes that health and well-being are greatly influenced by where we live, learn, work, and play; the safety of our surroundings; and the relationships we have in our families and communities. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of local leaders and community members who together are transforming neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that better health flourishes everywhere.

Under the umbrella of the Live Algoma initiative, Algoma, WI became a 2017 recipient of the Culture of Health prize, being recognized as a community that has come together to set goals and work as teams on health and wellness issues.  Anyone can be a “bright spot,” an agent of change who plays a role in improving health!

News From Nurse Jody

Love is an ACTION

Show yourself love by taking action to protect your health. Your wellbeing is so much more complex than taking a morning run or eating your vegetables. Taking a proactive role in your health enables you to be there for others who depend on you in their lives.

To care for others, we must care for ourselves first.

Women, take the time this month to schedule your physical and cancer screenings. Guys, you can encourage the women in your life to take action to protect their health.

The schedule below includes general recommendations for women. Talk to your primary care physician to determine a schedule that’s right for you:Skin cancer screening regularly at every age

  • Skin cancer screening regularly at every age
  • Cervical cancer screening at least every 3 years after age 20
  • Mammogram every 1-2 years after age 40
  • Colonoscopy every 10 years after age 50

Bellin For Women will enhance your life – physically, emotionally, and socially. Learn how to take charge of your health and your family’s health, connect with other women on the same path, and have fun doing it. Join this supportive community and take action to show yourself some love.

Sometimes the first action for self-care is having that open and honest conversation with someone who can help! Schedule a FREE health coaching visit with me to discuss how you can achieve your health goals. I’m available at the Wellness Center on Thursdays from 11 am to 1 pm or at the Bellin Algoma Clinic on Tuesdays from 8 am to 11 am. All appointments are Free and confidential.

Schedule your 1:1 Coaching session today by calling 800.528.7883 or scheduling online: https://www.bellin.org/open-schedule/algomacommunity
