Wellness and Prevention

Wellness is an active, lifelong process of becoming aware of choices and making decisions toward a more balanced and fulfilling life. Healthy People 2020 is a national agenda for reducing the most significant preventable threats to health. The goals of Healthy People 2020 include:

  • Attain high-quality, longer lives free of preventable disease, disability, injury and premature death
  • Achieve health equity, eliminate disparities and improve the health of all groups
  • Create social and physical environments that promote good health for all
  • Promote quality of life, healthy development and healthy behaviors across all life stages

The latest rural healthy people document is the Rural Healthy People 2020 which outlines a strategic plan for completing Rural Healthy People 2020.
