The Way to Wellness-Winona Health
Representatives of 'The Way to Wellness' campaign were in Winona Monday to pay a site visit and learn more about the community and Winona Health.
Winona has been chosen as one of ten finalists for the national competition to find five communities to participate.
Winona Health President and CEO, Rachelle Schultz, says the visit, which included stops at Miller Ingenuity, Minnesota Marine Art Museum and East End Recreation Center, went very well.
The representatives mode of transportation around town was provided by Winona's own Trestor Trolley.
Schultz says getting selected as one of the final five participants in the campaign it would be a big benefit to the entire community and surrounding areas not just Winona Health.
The announcement of the final five communities across the nation who will participate in the five-year challenge will be made sometime next month after the last site visit August 11th. The initiative is sponsored by a non profit organization founded to encourage community-led innovation that results in healthier people and places.
