RiseVT Update

Launched in 2015 in Franklin and Grand Isle counties, RiseVT was adopted by OneCare in 2018 and expanded to communities throughout the state of Vermont. Until July 2022, RiseVT was the community-based prevention program OneCare Vermont supported to make the healthy choice, the easy choice where we live, work, learn, and play. Through partnerships with local hospitals and healthcare centers, program managers led community health initiatives around the state of Vermont. Their efforts will continue through the development of sustainable programming and infrastructure like crosswalks, walking trails, and improved signage, while their leadership on public policy work has created lasting improvements in areas like school wellness policy. As part of the community prevention effort, OneCare also invested over $500,000 to amplify local efforts, addressing social and environmental determinants of health across all sectors. OneCare is proud to have strengthened many local community coalitions and is committed to prevention as the foundation for value-based care.
