Call to Collective Action

The Together Summit delved into the vitally important work of moving from doing "good things" to understanding the power of "shared accountability." There was a strong emphasis upon the message that alleviating the burden of chronic disease in Lake County is critical to our shared successful future.  The Summit concluded with a proposal of three specific community health improvement initiatives, which have large policy, system, and environmental change implications for all of Lake County.  Ninety-eight percent of surveyed participants stated that they wanted to join at least one of the initiatives.
