Building a Culture of Health means using diverse strategies to address the many things that influence health in our communities. This includes all of the factors in the County Health Rankings model of health: health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and the physical environment. Judges will look to see that applicant communities are taking action across these areas. Applicant communities are also encouraged to share how they respond to community needs, assets, and priorities. Given the importance of social and economic factors in influencing health, judges are particularly interested in seeing how communities are making changes in education, employment/income, family and social support, and community safety.
