RISE Cowley is a coalition of like-minded organizations and individuals dedicated to working to make Cowley County a healthier place to live, work and play. RISE stands for: Raising Awareness, Improving Health, Supporting Collaboration and Energizing Communities. RISE Cowley Coalition membership is open to anyone with two options: "coalition member" or "network member."

Coalition members are invited to participate in quarterly meetings from 10:00-11:00 on the second Tuesday of the month. The location of the meetings rotates throughout the county. Organizations will be asked to appoint one person as their voting member. Steering Committee members are elected annually from Coalition membership.

Network members do not attend regular meetings, but they remain informed about the work through a quarterly email newsletter and special updates about events/healthy happenings in the community.
