Health coalition is intended to engage a broad spectrum of community partners to promote the physical and behavioral health and well being of children ages 5-18 years old as they grow into adults, by supporting local systems, environments, and policies that reduce risks for chronic diseases and help supper healthy behaviors for a lifetime. 
Recently Clinton County was awarded a grant from Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky to address health concerns in our youth. National statistics reveal Kentucky’s children are at a greater risk than the national average in several chronic disease factors:
- Almost 4 in 10 (37%) between the ages of 10 and 17 are     overweight or obese.
- 1 in every 400 children or adolescents either has or will be diagnosed with diabetes.
- More than 1 in 4 high school students smoke cigarettes.
- When children grow into adulthood, Kentucky is above the national average in deaths from heart disease, cancer and stroke.
