Healthy Ulster Council is a key component of Ulster County's Community Health Improvement Plan, as it relates to the New York State Department of Health's Prevention Agenda and in support of County Executive Mike Hein's goal of making Ulster the healthiest county in New York.
The primary mission of the Healthy Ulster Council is to "connect the dots" between the multitude of organizations, sectors, programs and communities, in Ulster County, that are working to promote wellness and prevent illness. By building on existing strengths, leveraging resources and identifying potential synergies and funding sources, the Healthy Ulster Council works to enhance and improve health outcomes for all residents by creating an integrated system of chronic disease prevention.
Healthy Ulster Council activities and initiatives are designed to be broad enough to be inclusive of all stakeholders, new ideas and innovative approaches, while also being focused enough to achieve tangible and measurable results.
