Helping Crow Wing County “Turn The Curve” on Healthier Habits
The 6th Annual Crow Wing Energized Health & Wellness Summit

Crow Wing Energized invites the community to participate in generating positive behavior changes to impact health and wellness in Crow Wing County.

The most recent Crow Wing County Community Health Survey found that we’re not eating the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables, we’re not meeting physical activity recommendations, tobacco use has increased with fewer people trying to quit, and overall 1 in 3 (37.8%) have high blood pressure and 66% of respondents are overweight or obese.

This year’s Crow Wing Energized summit will be a facilitated working session focused on creating change through identifying barriers and creating effective solutions to help make the healthy choice the easy choice using the theoretical change model.

Together attendees will look specifically at the issues in Crow Wing County surrounding tobacco use, mental fitness, healthy eating and exercise.
