Healthy People Wood County




This project is funded by the Wood County Health Department. The Steering Committee is comprised of leaders from Ascension Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Aspirus Riverview Hospital and Clinics, the Legacy Foundation, Marshfield Clinic Health System, and the Wood County Health Department. 

These leaders have served as the coordinating council to plan the process, gather community health data, and identify and engage individuals and key informants who represent a broad spectrum of community stakeholders, including representatives from education, business, philanthropy, faith-based organizations, local and tribal government, underserved populations (including low-income individuals, youth, elders, and people of color), social service agencies, law enforcement, and health care 


Four coalitions that align with the four identified priorities are leading the community collaborations. These include: (1) Mental Health Matters, (2) AOD Prevention Partnership, (3) Recreate Health, and (4) Brighter Futures. For specific contact information, see the individual coalition pages.
