Rx for Wellness

The North Coast Rx for Wellness Program (RxWP) addresses the social determinants of health (SDH) areas of Health and Health Care, Economic Stability, Improved Neighborhood and Built Environment, and the Strengthening Social and Community Context through internal systems transformation and through ODCHC-garden-staffcommunity collaboration to maximize the capacity within our rural region to improve health outcomes for low income patients.

RxWP will be driven by 4 Goals:

  • Goal 1: Establish a cohesive, streamlined RxWP throughout the Network for CHC patients and staff;
  • Goal 2: Expand RxWP healthy eating, active living opportunities throughout the Network for patients;
  • Goal 3: Enhance patient engagement in RxWP via targeted health literacy & education campaigns;
  • Goal 4: Lead an SDH Community Coalition with health care and community-based organizations.
