Many of us in the community are working toward a healthier and happier Swain County. Together, we are trying to reduce chronic disease through health programs, like Swain Summits. Swain Summits is a community and worksite wellness program. Swain County Health Department aims to increase physical activity, nutrition, and mental health through worksite wellness. Why worksite wellness? We spend over 60% of our time at work and we want to help work toward a healthier and happier Swain.
