Healthy communities are strong communities. When King County residents are at their best health they are active community members free from physical and mental illness, chronic disease and injury. They are surrounded by opportunities to exercise, eat healthfully and live in neighborhoods and homes safe from dangerous conditions and exposure to environmental toxins. Whether it's ample time to play outside with their kids or access to fresh foods, communities know what they need to be healthy. We support health and wellness initiatives that are driven by the communities they are serving. Learn more (pdf) about the Health & Wellness element.
