The Wellness Coalition of Southern Indiana (WCSI) is made up of a variety of Clark, Floyd and Scott county residents who are concerned with the well-being of our citizenry as it pertains to health and wellness.
Statistics show that Indiana residents are at risk for health related illnesses including heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and stroke. Our obesity rates are some of the worst in the nation. These problems affect health care costs, the workforce and the very future of our children. WCSI has been formed to be a conduit to bring awareness and education to the residents of Clark, Floyd and Scott counties in Southern Indiana regarding health, nutrition, fitness and general well-being.
This website is not only populated with information to educate and inform our residents, we also hope to promote and encourage organizations and groups around the area to utilize the website to share their information and success stories.
In our research, members have discovered a severe lack of communication between groups, organizations, businesses and communities regarding event planning. It is our belief that the WCSI website will offer planners an opportunity to make educated decisions on when to hold events as not to compete with others sharing the same missions. In fact, this pipeline of information may well lead to much needed collaboration between organizations to make events more robust, leading to higher attendance and better outcomes.
A community united for improved wellness.
Together we will improve the wellness of our community by gathering and sharing information to promote lasting lifestyle changes.
