How Lockland THRIVES!:
- A WeTHRIVE! Community: Lockland is one of three initial WeTHRIVE! communities that became engaged with Hamilton County Public Health in 2009 as part of the Strategic Alliance for Health grant. Lockland has shown an impressive commitment to working together as a community to achieve health and wellness goals. During the four year grant period, the community built and improved physical activity venues, created gardens, committed to wellness and made progress toward the goal of being tobacco-free.
- A Committed Council: In May 2014, Village Council adopted the WeTHRIVE! overall resolution, further establishing the commitment to a healthy community. In September 2014, Village Council also adopted a WeTHRIVE! Community Health and Chronic Disease resolution.
- WeTHRIVE! Team Members: Bob Brown (council), Joyce Campbell, Dave Krings (administrator), Shirley Mesley, Adam Raby (council), and Reverend Dawne Sarchet.
- Selected Pathway(s): Community Health
- Community Health Assessment: Hamilton County Public Health compiled and shared findings from a Community Health Assessment at a community presentation on March 16, 2017. Results to a one question survey--"In your opinion, what are the most important issues that affect the health, safety, and well-being of your community?"--were also shared.
