Welcome to Rockford Health Council

Listen! Talk! Act!
Communicating Across Diverse Cultures

Rockford Health Council would like to thank all those who supported our workshop – Listen! Talk! Act! Communicating Across Diverse Cultures – on Wednesday, October 29.  Well over 100 individuals heard keynote speaker Jodi Pfarr discuss how diversity in culture impacts us and those we serve, learning new ways of thinking about these differences and how to use that knowledge to improve communication with those we interact with on a daily basis.

Rockford Health Council Community Dashboard

A healthy community demonstrates an element of interconnectedness. When a healthy community initiative is working, a communal spirit develops, linking public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Healthy people make a strong community. These nine key health issues are the deliberations of Work Groups who represent a wide spectrum of interests and roles. They developed and are implementing strategies to make a strong community work well. Although there are challenges, we are taking a proactive approach to solving key issues in our community. Visit our new Community Dashboard for additional information.  You can also visit another of our partners at www.ourvitalsigns.com.
