Community Health

developing Vibrant, livable communities 

Healthy Iowans are more productive in the workforce, contribute to the social and cultural fabric that makes up our state, and are able to enjoy more fulfilling lives. How do we make it easier for our citizens to live healthier lives? The Office of Outreach and Engagement works with community partners on a range of health issues, from individual health concerns such as dietary habits or disease management to more community-based issues such as infrastructure improvements for sidewalks and recreation trails. Improvements in any and all of these areas help people throughout the state embrace active lifestyles. 

Our office is ideally situated to serve community health needs in Iowa, thanks to the robust health-sciences opportunities on campus and our collaborations with the College of Public Health.
