Algoma has been recognized as one of eight winners of the 2017 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize. The national recognition comes with a $25,000 cash prize and recognizes the community for pursuing innovative ideas and bringing partners together to rally around a shared vision of health. The Algoma School District was recognized for inspiring youth to be a driving force behind a shared vision to help the community thrive. Residents, businesses and health providers have united behind the Live Algoma Initiative, promoting physical, emotional, and financial well being. A community celebration will be held on October 28th at the Algoma High School’s Community Wellness Center to honor the collective efforts involved in improving health and well being in Algoma.
