City, county reach top 10 in Way to Wellville


Follow The Republic:


Columbus and Bartholomew County are one step away from earning a spot in a national community health competition.

Now in the top 10, Columbus has emerged from the round of 41 and the sweet 16 in The Way to Wellville challenge.

The Health Initiative Coordinating Council, also called HICCup, will name five winning communities by Aug. 15 to compete over five years for the greatest improvement in five health measures.

If selected, HICCup will measure how well the city and county influence healthy behaviors, how much is saved in health care costs, what effect it has on the community and whether the effort can be sustained.
