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!

Hypertension (high blood pressure) can potentially lead to heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death of men and women. One in four deaths, in the United States, is due to heart disease. Besides causing heart disease, high blood pressure may lead to having a stroke, a heart attack, or even diabetes. That is why it is vital to know your blood pressure and keep it under control.

There are many risk factors that may cause high blood pressure including age, race, familial history, smoking, drinking alcohol, consuming too much sodium in your diet, stress, and having a sedentary lifestyle. There may also be medical conditions that also cause hypertension including diabetes, sleep apnea, or kidney disease.
