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

Back to school time is not only significant for our kids, it’s important for adults too! You are never too old to learn new things! Become a life-long learner and challenge yourself to learn something new each day!

Expanding our skills and exploring our creative abilities is an important component of health and wellbeing. As children, we enjoy a host of activities including art, writing, sports, drama and more. But as busy adults, we may not take the time to create something, express ourselves or pursue new experiences. We may view this as wasted time if we cannot be the best at or make a living from our hobbies.

Consider these words of ACTION as you reflect upon your ability to improve your mind, body, and spirit.

  • Learn.  Be open to learning something new without a “pass or fail” mentality. You don’t have to stick with something, but you will never know if it’s a fit unless you try.
  •  Change. Embracing change as a natural part of life is crucial to a growth mindset. Change can be scary
    at first, especially if you are pushed into it. But when you view change as an opportunity — instead of
    something to fear — you will see your life expand.Grow. Become a student again. Get excited about things you don’t know how to do or haven’t
  • Grow. Become a student again. Get excited about things you don’t know how to do or haven’t mastered. Growth will make you feel alive and excited.
  • Expand. Celebrate expanding into a new area. There are no limits to your potential.

Are you considering setting a new goal for your health and well-being? No matter how big or how small,
make sure you have the support you need!

Stop in for a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL visit during my RN
Coach hours at the Wellness Center on Thursdays from 11-1 pm or Tuesdays 8-11 at the Bellin Algoma
Clinic.

I look forward to seeing you!
Nurse Jody
