Mayo Clinic Health System believes that health is more than the absence of illness. It includes an environment that supports the physical, emotional and social well-being of those who live, work, and play there. In fact, studies show that many of the factors that have the greatest impact on our health occur in our communities.
Mayo Clinic Health System is pleased to offer a Hometown Health Grant as part of our investment into improving the health of the communities we serve. The Hometown Health Grant supports innovative efforts to improve mental health, prevent obesity and reduce chronic disease in local schools, workplaces and neighborhoods. This grant works in partnership with community-based organizations and residents to translate their vision for healthy communities into visible, concrete changes — and, ultimately, a healthier hometown.
