About

The Wyandotte Health Newsroom, originally launched by Healthy Communities Wyandotte’s Communication Action Team, is a collaborative community effort to create and share stories related to the health of Wyandotte County in Kansas.

Each month, CAT members and other health leaders gather to pitch significant health news stories. The members use a democratic process to select and rank which stories to publish. They then agree to distribute those stories to the networks of HCW’s many partner organizations. Stories for the Newsroom can be submitted for consideration in advance of the monthly meeting.

Over time, we envision a process that will be driven by members of the Newsroom community—not by Healthy Communities Wyandotte. Stories created or promoted by the Newsroom will appear on this site.
