Woodbury THRIVES is a community initiative aimed at improving the health of residents in the broadest of ways: physical health, spiritual and emotional well-being and financial health. Events and services will help residents grow in health and financial literacy, improve healthy behaviors, and together promote Woodbury as a health and wellness community.
The benefits will include healthier families, a more vibrant source of employees for economic development, and better access to services that help citizens adopt a lifestyle of health and well-being.
