Ohio Wellness and Prevention Network Releases Resources to Help Community Leaders Address Health Challenges

The AMCNO is a member of the Ohio Wellness and Prevention Network (OWPN), which is part of the Health Policy Institute of Ohio (HPIO). Recently, the OWPN released to its members a Guide to Evidence-Based Prevention to help community leaders address health challenges identified in the HPIO’s Health Value Dashboard and what works to prevent these health concerns, such as tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure, food security and healthy food access, and physical activity.

The groups also cited additional resources related to the work they do:
