How can we prevent chronic disease by creating a community that supports healthy lifestyle choices for all?

The County Health Rankings model tells us that when we think about improvements that can create a healthier community, increasing healthy behaviors will impact about 30% of our outcomes. The Healthy Lifestyles priority focuses on ways that we as a community can change our behaviors and improve negative health outcomes such as heart disease, stroke, obesity and lung cancer.
