What is the Healthy Kearns Movement?

The goal of the Healthy Kearns Movement is to bring partners and community members together with the hopes of making Kearns an even better place to live. The movement starts by finding solutions for health and social concerns in Kearns. 

The Healthy Kearns Movement is a partnership between the Utah Department of Health and the Evidence2Success Kearns Community Coalition (E2S).

Our mission

Identify and address key health and social concerns in order to design equitable evidence-based activities that address the overall well-being needs of Kearns residents.

Our vision

A vibrant Kearns where every resident has the opportunity to be their healthiest self.

Our goal

To make sure everyone can reach their fullest health potential, first we need to identify the important health concerns in the community; as well as anything that makes it hard for people to get healthcare, practice good health behaviors, find or access opportunities and activities that make them healthier, or stay healthy.

In order to do this, we need to look at many things that can affect someone’s health, like:

  • How much people already know about their family history, risk for disease, and the steps they need to take to prevent disease.
  • What people do to stay healthy and how they feel about different health recommendations.
  • What kinds of policies are in place to make it easy for people to stay healthy (like clinics that are open after normal working hours, how many people have paid sick leave or get time off to get health checkups or cancer screenings, etc.)
  • If the different cultural values and experiences of community members affect their health decisions.

We want to learn how you think Kearns can improve to better support your health and well-being and use that information to create changes in the community.

¿Qué es el Healthy Kearns Movement?

La meta de Healthy Kearns Movement es reunir a los asociados y miembros de la comunidad con la esperanza de hacer de Kearns un lugar aún mejor para vivir. El movimiento comienza encontrando soluciones para las inquietudes sociales y sanitarios de Kearns.

Healthy Kearns Movement es una Sociedad entre el Departamento de Salud de Utah y Evidence2Success Kearns Community Coalition (E2S).

Nuestra meta

Deseamos que cada miembro de la comunidad de Kearns tenga la oportunidad de ser lo más saludable que sea posible. Para asegurarnos de que cada individuo alcance su potencial de salud completo, primero necesitamos saber si hay alguna preocupación sanitaria importante en la comunidad y si hay algo que dificulta que las personas reciban atención médica, practiquen comportamientos saludables, encuentren o tengan acceso a las oportunidades y actividades que los hacen más saludables o que permanezcan saludables.

Cada comunidad tiene diferentes necesidades en cuanto a los servicios de atención de la salud.  Healthy Kearns Movement invita a la comunidad a asociarse y unirse con los trabajadores de la salud pública.  Nuestra meta es saber qué es lo mejor para mantener a todos sanos, en el área de Kearns y proporcionar las recomendaciones que ayuden a mejorar cualquier desafío que tengan los miembros de la comunidad para recibir atención médica o permanecer sanos.

Para lograrlo, necesitamos observar muchas cosas que pueden afectar la salud de una persona, por ejemplo:

  • Cuánto saben las personas sobre su historia familiar, riesgos de contraer enfermedades y los pasos que deben tomar para prevenir las enfermedades. 
  • Qué hacen las personas para mantenerse sanas y qué piensan de las diferentes recomendaciones sobre la salud.
  • Qué tipo de políticas están establecidas para facilitar que las personas permanezcan sanas (como las clínicas que permanecen abiertas fuera del horario normal de trabajo, cuántas personas tienen licencia por enfermedad pagada en sus trabajos o tienen días libres para hacer visitas médicas o exámenes para el cáncer, etc.)
  • Si los diferentes valores culturales y las experiencias de los miembros de la comunidad afectan sus decisiones médicas.

Esperamos saber:

  • Qué significa salud y bienestar para usted y su familia. 
  • Qué necesita su familia para permanecer sana.
  • Cómo habla con su familia de los temas relacionados con la salud. 
  • Dónde recibe información sobre la salud. 
  • Dónde recibe servicios sobre la salud o atención médica y cuál fue su experiencia con esos servicios. 
  • Qué cambios desea que se realicen en Kearns para hacer que sea el mejor lugar para vivir.
  • De qué manera podemos usar esta información para realizar cambios en la comunidad que puedan ayudar a las personas a reducir el riesgo de contraer enfermedades y permanecer sanos.
