Healthy Iowans living in healthy communities
Promoting and protecting the health of Iowans
We strive for INNOVATION and CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT in our activities to promote and protect the health of Iowans.
Our activities reflect a POPULATION HEALTH approach that considers the MULTIPLE DETERMINANTS of health.
With a collective sense of SOCIAL JUSTICE, our activities reflect understanding and acceptance of DIVERSITY among Iowans.
We encourage COLLABORATION in our activities and in our decision making so that we respond more effectively to emerging issues and assure we provide the highest QUALITY of services.
We recognize the value of a healthy COMMUNITY in developing healthy Iowans. We encourage our employees, Iowa’s communities, and individual Iowans to work together as PARTNERS to build a healthy Iowa.
We use EVIDENCE to plan and evaluate our activities to assure our RESULTS continue to improve the health of Iowans.
