DSCF4873Targeting The Challenges to Surface Solutions

Here are the challenges the teams shared with summit participants.  At the tables people drilled down by asking “Why” questions to seek out what the root challenge(s) might actually be. This discovery is leading to working on solutions that will actually impact the root challenge.

Healthier Choices:  People regularly choose unhealthy food options at home and away from home.

Mental Fitness:  People of all ages in Mower County are experiencing feelings of stress, anxiety, isolation, hopelessness and depression.

Workforce Wellness:  Communicating wellness information to employees effectively.
