Draft Strategy Presented to Board of Health Today

Did you know that 4 out of 5 Thurston County students graduate from high school on time? (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, 2012)  How much education one attains has lifelong implications for health.

The Thurston Thrives Education Action Team has identified strategies for improving the health of the Thurston County community through better educational attainment. Education Action Team Lead, Mike Hickman, and members of the team, presented the recommendations to the Thurston County Board of Health and the Thurston Thrives Advisory Council today.
