Your Health

Health throughout the Lifespan

Healthy choices should be supported by your environment and community, but health also starts with your lifestyle choices. Taking care of yourself early in life keeps you healthier longer and saves money on healthcare costs. 

Our healthly lifespan division focuses on improving quality of life for individuals. We focus on identifying personal healthcare needs through nursing services to move towards healthier life choices. Our focus also includes working with the community to improve the culture of healthcare. 

Use the resources found within this section to learn about the services WCHD provides for different stages along a healthy lifespan. You may also call or email the Healthy Lifespan Supervisor, Alana Erickson (
