Pathways to a Healthy Kansas
In Geary County
In 2017, Geary County was one of eight Kansas communities selected as a grantee in the largest community grant program ever funded by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas. The Pathways to a Healthy Kansas program provided community coalitions like Live Well Geary County with the tools and resources needed to remove barriers and engage the community in healthy ways.
Geary County is currently in its second phase with Pathways. In each phase, Live Well Geary County implements different programs and health initiatives.
