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, including the Barron area.
We are pleased to offer the Hometown Health Grant as part of our investment into improving the health of the communities we serve. The grant supports innovative efforts to:
Improve mental health
Reduce chronic disease
Address substance use and alcohol misuse
The 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.
