Healthy Communities Wyandotte, (913) 573-8833, Government Organization, Kansas City

HCW is an initiative to involve local leaders and citizens in improving the health of people in Wyandotte County, Kansas.

While many factors affect our health, the place that we call home may be the most important.

Healthy Communities Wyandotte aims to unite everyone in our community -- residents, researchers, community leaders, practitioners, and elected officials -- to work together toward a better, healthier future.

HCW got its start in 2009 when Mayor Joe Reardon and Joe Connor, director of the Unified Government's Public Health Department, gathered a group of community leaders and researchers to discuss Wyandotte County's poor performance in the County Health Rankings.

Since November 2010, community members have been working together to tackle the health concerns of people who live, work, play, learn and operate businesses in Wyandotte County. Committee members from government, health, education, community development, and non-profit organizatiosn form the backbone of the initiative.

More recently, more than 95 coalition members on five Action Teams -- communications, education, infrastructure, nutrition and health services -- united to brainstorm ideas for local improvements in each area. Their ideas now form the basis of our ongoing work.
