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!

Monthly Feature Article: Do You Know Your Number?

1. Blood pressure
2. Cholesterol (HDL, LDL, and triglycerides)
3. Calcium scoring

Being aware of a possible condition based on risk factors and test results gives you the power to take any necessary steps toward improving your health. What can you do today?

Limit the amount of meat and full-fat dairy you eat. Consider replacing meat and cheese in your main dishes with beans or vegetables once or twice each week. Start a salad club at work! https://www.bellin.org/images/wellbeing/salad-pdf.pdf

Get more fiber in your diet. The good news is you’ll get more fiber automatically if you are eating more beans and vegetables! Oatmeal is another great source of fiber and has been shown to lower cholesterol. You can bring a healthier potluck to work too. https://www.bellin.org/images/wellbeing/Potluck-lunch-poster.pdf

Relax and recharge. If we let it, stress can negatively impact our health. Taking the time to move our bodies, enjoy nature, connect with others, and just breathe deeply are easy techniques that help us not only survive stress, but also thrive in the midst of it. Insight Timer is a FREE meditation app with guided meditations and relaxing music for stress relief and quality sleep. You can also try the simple, yet proven, 4-7-8 Breathing Technique. (Start with only 1-3 cycles).

Talk to your Community Nurse Activator!! Nurse Jody can take your blood pressure, explain your numbers, and work with you to develop a plan for improvement!
