The Platte County Lifestyle Coalition (PCLC) works to bring representatives from all areas of the community together to help make healthy choices more accessible and more likely. Its focus is on connecting with community organizations to help implement effective strategies for physical activity and healthy eating.

Vision: People engaged in thriving lifestyles.

Mission: To achieve healthier lifestyles through the development of relationships with family, friends and neighbors by utilizing education, engagement and empowerment.

Goals: To increase healthy behaviors across five pillars of overall health: physical activity, healthy eating, reducing stress, restful sleep and social connectedness.

Members of the PCLC consist of two local coalitions from the East Central District Health Department (ECDHD) and Columbus Community Hospital (CCH), and representatives from local businesses, schools, city offices, health care providers and service agencies. Concerned citizens are also involved in the coalition.
