Live Healthy Lincoln County (LHLC) is a new coalition of organizations and businesses that are joining together to improve the health and well-being of our residents. Much of the coalition’s efforts are aimed at implementing projects to prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease and strokes along with encouraging physical activity and healthy eating.
The LHLC coalition was formed because Lincoln County is one of five north central Kansas counties with access to a sizable federal grant aimed at preventative health initiatives. The grant is from the Center for Disease Control, administered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and facilitated locally by the Mitchell County Regional Medical Foundation in Beloit. The five counties are Lincoln, Mitchell, Jewell, Republic, and Smith.
