The county plans to do this by addressing social determinants of health, including transportation, child care, and community resources (Drury, Buffalo Business First, 9/10).

    • Wyoming: St. John's Medical Center is developing a "lifestyle medicine" program aimed at modifying patient behavior to better their long-term health. The initiative targets nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, and social connection (Rappleye, Becker's Hospital Review, 9/11).
