THRIVE! Southern Lorain County is a new collaborative that is dedicated to helping you and your family live healthier. Our mission is to reduce the risks of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in the region.
THE NEED IS GREAT
Few programs are in place to support health and wellness in southern Lorain County. Data has shown that 69% of adults are obese and 24% are smokers – much higher than the county average. What's more, the poverty rate in rural southern Lorain County is as high as the most impoverished neighborhoods of our cities.
