Seeking Insights From Community Partnerships that Advance Health
A New Survey Aims to Reveal how Communities Across the Nation are Using Collaboration to Safeguard Health
The health and well-being of a community is far too complex to be the responsibility of the health care sector alone. New Hampshire’s Greater Monadnock region has figured that out. Their Council for a Healthier Community is working with local organizations, businesses, community leaders, and citizens to make the region the healthiest community in the nation by 2020. As part of that ambitious goal, the coalition is exploring a Living Wage campaign, since income and health are inextricably linked. Healthy Monadnock has enrolled employers in the cause and is encouraging residents to patronize those companies and organizations who support a living wage.
