Read about our 2016 Highlights & Accomplishments here: YOW 2016 Year End Report
Great things happen when a broad-based group of citizens comes together with a common goal, to improve the health of their community. The Year of Wellness (YOW) is led by a volunteer Task Force made up of a diverse group of health partners found throughout Tillamook County. Additionally, seven subcommittees meet regularly to identify area needs and how the YOW can best meet them. These include: Nutrition, Physical Activity, Messaging & Marketing, Mental Health, Healthy People in Public Places and subcommittees for North and South County. Our goal is to increase awareness of what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and provide the access and motivation necessary to adopt new behaviors. We want all of our citizens and visitors to know their health matters!
