This month we’re pleased to share insights from one of our newer partners – Salt Lake County. Salt Lake County covers about 800 square miles and is home to more than 1.1 million people. The County is a diverse government employer with more than 30,000 employees. In collaboration with the Utah Department of Health, Salt Lake County began offering Better Choices, Better Health® (BCBH) in late 2018.

Anni McKinnon, Program Manager for the Healthy Living Program at Salt Lake County, took time to answer our questions and describe their reasons for, and early impacts of, offering Better Choices, Better Health to their population. Thank you Anni for the following insights.
