Douglas County has advanced to the next round in the annual Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize.
Out of 136 applicants, we are one of only 35 to reach Phase II. LiveWell Douglas County is a partner in this application.
We have completed our Phase II application. You can watch this Community Voices Entry video that was part of this phase, and it features Douglas County residents who have worked on making progress in:
- Integrating Arts and Social Science to serve behavioral health needs
- Building a Peer Support System of Care in Behavioral Health
- Affordable Housing solutions for all residents
- Building a Community of Learning and Practice for Equity
The video was supported by the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department and K-State Research and Extension - Douglas County.
The annual prize elevates the compelling stories of community members throughout the country who are working together in new ways so that everyone can live their healthiest life possible.
