Tillamook County Wellness (formerly the Year of Wellness) is led by a 22-member Task Force whose members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners and whose work is guided by the Tillamook County Public Health Department, our backbone organization.
Since its inception in 2015, this effort has focused on building relationships among friends, family, and co-workers, between organizations, and with leadership at the local and state level to improve community health in ways that prevent chronic disease, reduce healthcare costs and improve quality of life for our residents.
Because environment and lifestyle play such a significant role in chronic disease risk, it is our goal to assess, and restructure when feasible, the environments where people live, work and play to optimize health.
Our vision is that Tillamook County communities will be places where:
- Healthful choices are the norm;
- Creating a healthy community is the responsibility of the community and not just the individual;
- All health services care for the whole person; and
- Individuals feel empowered by their community to engage in healthful lifestyles.
We strive to ensure that Tillamook County residents have evidence-informed, relevant health and wellness information at their fingertips.
We encourage you to explore our website to see our latest blogs and recipes, view our calendar and classes pages to learn how you can get connected to wellness activities in your community and “Like” and follow us on Facebook for other wellness news, events and programs.
Great things happen when people come together with a common goal – to improve the health of their community.
