Creating Healthier Communities
All communities deserve the chance to reach their greatest health potential.
The places where we live, learn, work, and play all contribute to our ability to become and stay healthy. A Culture of Health depends on business, government, individuals, and organizations working together to build healthier, more equitable communities.
How effective are our environments in fostering the healthy development of our children or in adapting for older adults so they can age in place? Do our neighborhoods offer access to nutritious and affordable food, recreational facilities, and active transportation methods such as bike trails and sidewalks? Do community members feel safe and protected?
