Your Voice matters!

WyCo needs you to advocate for good health policy

The HCW Policy Committee was created to advocate for policies that create a thriving community . 

This is what we do:

  • Craft and update an annual policy agenda for the entire Healthy Communities Wyandotte coalition
  • Recommend specific health-related policies to the HCW networks and community for advocacy-action
  • Use our professional networks, to distribute timely policy-related information to the wider Wyandotte County Community.
