Winona Health has announced an enhanced partnership with Live Well Winona, a local organization that supports the health system's goal of improving community health. Live Well Winona, an organization dedicated to making a difference by helping people live better, healthier lives, will receive funding by Winona Health to support half their annual operating budget.
Winona Health President and C-E-O, Rachelle Schultz ,says the partnership provides a definite benefit to community members.
The Live Well Winona website has become the virtual 'health hub' of the community. It includes a community calendar, race calendar, resources directory, interactive accountability tools and the new addition, the virtual volunteer center.
Live Well Winona was formed in 2011 by in-kind support from Winona Health and a grant from Will and Shirley Oberton of Winona. Located in a storefront office near Winona State University, Live Well Winona has collaborated with Winona Health on several initiatives including annual Healthy Kids Club events.
