Health means more than eating well, exercising, or regularly seeing a doctor. It also means having strong, positive relationships, safe neighborhoods, and access to healthy food and physical activity.
United Way of Central Iowa is working to give all central Iowans equal opportunity to make healthy choices. Our specific investments in physical, social and community well-being are helping to raise the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index score, a comprehensive measure of health, to 64.5 by 2020.
