We are #HealthyKodiak
Healthy Kodiak recognizes that the health of our community is impacted by education, economic circumstances, access to quality food, mental health, physical activity, and relationships.
This community-centered health outreach and education initiative aims to raise awareness about local health challenges and provide residents and visitors with opportunities throughout the year to engage in health-promoting behaviors.
In 2018, Healthy Kodiak was a single-day event where our Island community was invited to come together to discuss, learn, and engage to address local community health and wellness challenges. In 2019, we added hands-on sessions for participants to engage in activities that support health.
In 2020, the pandemic made it necessary to change how we safely engage with our community. As a result, Healthy Kodiak shifted from an annual event to a year-round community-focused initiative. We offered online contests, zoom workshops, and socially distanced activities to encourage healthy engagement.
In 2021, Healthy Kodiak has continued to develop community partnerships and will be offering more digital challenges, learning workshops, presentations, and socially distanced activities as we head into 2022.
To bring our like-minded businesses, organizations, and individuals together to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors through fun activities, events, and educational opportunities that are accessible to all.
We believe that we all contribute to the health of our community, no matter age, cultural background, gender, employment or economic status.
If that sounds like you or your organization, we invite you to get involved!
