Achieve Community

Spearfish is a 2012-2013 ACHIEVE Community!

CDC's ACHIEVE communities (Action Communities for Health, Innovation, and EnVironmental changE) develop and implement population-based strategies that help prevent or manage health risk factors for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and arthritis. CDC provides funds to selected national organizations, which provide technical support and funds to selected communities. Through this funding mechanism, ACHIEVE communities are able to capitalize on the experience and expertise of national organizations in strengthening community leadership, building capacity, and activating change.


We are working in collaboration with Community Health Action Response Team members from Spearfish School District, Spearfish Regional, Hills Horizon, Black Hills State University, Prairie Hills Transit and Daycare Center, Pierre Parks and Recreation and RSVP, Spearfish Community Coalition and Spearfish Senior Center.

On Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 at the Spearfish Trethway Pavilion, we will be hosting an Informational Luncheon catered by A'viands. Please join us! We would love to hear your ideas as we talk about  initiatives to improve the health of our community! See flyer for more information.
