In 2018, the Regional Health Council was formed to include the Douglas, Sarpy/Cass, and Pottawattamie Health Departments, with support from the Metro Area Planning Agency (MAPA), the United Way of the Midlands, and the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health, to be convened by The Wellbeing Partners.
The Regional Health Council functions by listening to community members, businesses, organizations, schools, faith communities, and elected officials to understand the most pressing health needs and to activate a strategic and regional response that:
We envision a world in which everyone thrives in a state of wellbeing and in which every individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
Targeted Universalism “acknowledges different strategies needed for everyone to be able to benefit from reaching the goal, the platform also acknowledges and directs the prioritizing of different needs, different strategies, and a fair—rather than even—distribution of resources.” – powell [sic], Menendian, and Ake.
