Manitowoc Community

Aurora has worked with 36 communities in eastern Wisconsin to conduct health surveys. the extensive measurement of the state of residents' health and lifestyles helps identify the most critical local health issues.

We've utilized the survey results to focus on physical activity, nutrition, teen pregnancy prevention, substance abuse, injury prevention, tobacco use and access to dental care.

The survey helps us to focus limited health resources in areas that can have the greatest impact on our residents. Aurora is an important partner in our efforts to improve the health and well-being of our residents because we do not have the resources to conduct these health surveys on our own.

Aurora is helping us to tackle local health needs that can truly make a difference in the quality of life for people of all ages in Manitowoc County.
