KITCHEN WELLNESS We bring wellness services and information directly to you at your kitchen table. The Rural Health Initiative Inc. (RHI) is a 501(c)3, non-profit program focused on the growing concerns and barriers related to the health and safety of today’s farm families.

At the center of this program is a trained Outreach Health Coordinator (OHC) who makes complimentary (free) in-home or on-site house calls (visits) to interested farmers (including their family members and staff ages 18 and older), and/or agribusinesses, to provide preventive health screenings (with immediate test results for blood pressure, blood glucose (blood sugar), triglycerides, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, height, weight, body mass index [BMI], body fat percentage, and A1C), offer health coaching on relevant topics, and share community referral information to Shawano, Waupaca, Outagamie, and Marathon counties.

Most importantly, the Rural Health Initiative (RHI) lends a trusted and confidential ear to listen to your health and well-being concerns and needs. A concept we call KITCHEN WELLNESS.
