Yes, you’re reading this correctly, Dodge Refreshed! We are excited to announce the Refreshed initiative expanding in Dodge County with the support Mayo Clinic Health System (MCHS) Kasson Clinic and the Center for Innovation (CFI) located at Mayo Clinic, Rochester!
Dodge Refreshed has been a developing wellness initiative for over a year, building collaborations and working hard to identify specific health focuses that make sense to the communities located in Dodge County. Similar to the wellness initiative here in Mower County, which was initially developed out of CFI in 2010 and currently supported by MCHS and many partners in the county, Dodge Refreshed is listening to ideas and looking to see what citizens are already doing to improve their county’s health and building on those efforts...another example of engaging citizens in efforts that positively impact the health of their communities.
We are excited to offer support and share all we are learning in our grass-roots community engagement now called Mower Refreshed. We are in the early stages of understanding and implementing citizens ideas here in Mower County that will change the culture. It takes patience and endurance to shift our attitudes and actions so we create environments where making healthy choices is easier and natural at home, work and school.
Sharing resources, ideas and energy across county lines that promote healthy choices being easier and more accessible to all citizens is a win for Minnesota! It’s not about being the healthiest county in Minnesota, it’s about inspiring every county to be the healthy!
