Live Well Sioux Falls is a community-based initiative designed to help improve the health and well-being of Sioux Falls residents by collaborating on projects to address health needs. The Live Well Sioux Falls Coalition, a group of diverse businesses, organizations and individuals, is instrumental in guiding our efforts to improve community health and wellness.
2019 COMMUNITY HEALTH STATUS REPORT
Working together, the Live Well Sioux Falls coalition completed a Community Health Needs Assessment and conducted a resident survey to gather information about health in our community. This 2019 Community Health Status Report summarizes information about the health and well-being of the residents of Sioux Falls and presents strategies for providing a healthier community.
It is intended to guide the efforts of the many programs and services currently provided in our community as well as inspire new programs that focus on the
most critical needs of Sioux Falls residents.
