Health and Wellness
Health and Wellness programs and strategies for communities are designed to promote healthy living and give information about how to combat health risks in a community. From obesity to diabetes to mental health issues, communities are implementing a variety of programs at the family, school and community level to educate and treat a variety of conditions. A well-informed community is a healthy community.
