Health Care Organizations

5210 Healthy Washoe works with pediatric and family practices in Washoe County. Children and parents alike look to their healthcare providers for trusted health advice, and hearing the 5-2-1-0 message at their doctor’s office reinforces the healthy habits children are learning in child care and school or at out-of-school programs.

The 5210 program can be easily woven into a practice’s busy day. We provide everything you need to get started including a brief training for the entire staff.

Once you become a registered site, you’ll have access to a free toolkit full of resources for staff and families, training by a physician champion, and technical assistance from a trained coordinator. By getting involved with 5210 Healthy Washoe you’ll join a network of organizations just like yours, working to improve the health of our children.

Lastly, as part of our evaluation and commitment to continuous improvement, we provide practices an opportunity to be recognized. This recognition highlights practices’ commitment to helping patients establish healthy habits at a young age through the 5-2-1-0 message and use of the Healthy Habits Questionnaire.

Registered sites in Washoe County receive a free hard-copy toolkit. For all others, a free online version is available below.
