A place for community recognition and discussion of the
connections between health, wealth and education.
In 2013, the Friedell Committee for Health convened a Think Tank composed of board members, committee members and other non-member opinion leaders to address the question: What will it take for Kentucky to be healthier state? One of the things that came out of this discussion is the recognition that to change behavior and culture, communities must organize to make community health a community issue, which will create social pressure for behavior change. We must stop tolerating ill health.
GetWellKY is designed to help foster such community involvement in all parts of Kentucky, It is a resource for Kentucky communities to learn about and discuss the connections between health, wealth and education, and to spur them into state and local action.
