Healthy Environments Active Living
Vision: All Utahns have equitable opportunities to lead healthy, informed, safe, and productive lives.
Mission: Create community-clinical linkages and improve education, policy, built environment, and access to quality care in preventing and managing chronic diseases.
Collaborative: We believe working collaboratively fuels growth, innovation, and creativity. We believe in working collaboratively with anyone directly impacted by our work and that strategic partnerships are fundamental to our success. We believe our partners and the general public should have access to program resources and expertise, and we will be clear about how to access these materials.
Communication: We will communicate openly, frequently, and respectfully. We will be clear and transparent in all of our communications and work cohesively to complete high quality work in a timely manner.
Data-driven: We believe data and evaluation should be incorporated into all stages of work to ensure interventions are evidence-based, inform continuous quality improvement, and monitor progress towards reaching our goals. We believe in sharing data back with staff, partners, and the public, where appropriate.
Equitable: We believe that the prioritization of issues and activities, and the distribution of resources, must be carried out in a manner that allows all Utahns the opportunity to attain their highest level of health. We believe that health equity cannot be advanced without the meaningful involvement of underserved communities in all stages of work.
Innovative: We believe in a culture of continuous learning and a willingness to apply new knowledge and ideas without the fear of failure. We understand that although every new idea may not produce the desired outcomes, there is always a lesson to extract from it that will contribute to the evidence base.
Respect: We value the differences in opinion, communication styles and knowledge of our team and partners, and we respect those differences by being kind, courteous and valuing their work. We assume good intent in all situations.
Work-life Balance: The demands of one's career and the demands of one's personal life are equally important. We recognize that we are all individuals and value the flexibility to learn and adapt as needed to help meet demands in our work and in our personal lives.
Healthy People: Increase access to resources that empower all people in Utah to reach their full health potential.
Healthy Communities: Increase the capacity of communities to support and promote healthy living for all individuals.
Equitable Society: Increase opportunities for people who are under-resourced and under-represented in Utah to live healthy and thriving lives.
