Since the creation of the EDC Partners back in 2001, health and wellness issues have been part of the focus as we make St. Charles County a nationally recognized, most livable community.

Leaders in this area have been the strong collaboration of the various hospital systems in and around our community, including SSM St. Joseph Healthcare, BJC HealthCare, Mercy and St. Luke’s Hospital.

To promote active and healthy living, the EDC Partners Health Committee has helped organize Workplace Wellness Workshops, studied best practices from peer counties around the US, facilitated and sponsored events like the annual MO’ Cowbell Race, and focused local attention on the benefits of Blue Zones identified around the world.
