First launched in Addison County in 2019, Dinner Together has expanded to our RiseVT communities in Windham County too. The inititiative encourages families to eat meals together—because eating as a family improves children and teen learning in school, enhances their social and emotional well-being, and leads to lifelong healthy eating habits.
RiseVT is our lead primary prevention strategy
OneCare Vermont’s Network Performance Management core business capability is designed to improve access to health care and the quality of care received in the doctor’s office and all clinical settings. Our strategy doesn’t stop there, however, because we know that a patient’s physical environment, social and economic factors, and health behaviors really add up to impact both length and quality of life. In fact, when looking at all of these factors that influence a Vermonter’s health, only 20% are influenced by clinical care. This is where RiseVT comes in to work in communities on policies and programs that implement health behavior change interventions and address the social, economic, and physical environment factors that impact health.
