Health is complex. The health of our community is like a building—it depends on a strong and stable foundation. A healthy physical environment includes things like safe and affordable housing, safe drinking water, and clean air. Social and economic factors like quality education, access to healthcare, community safety, and employment opportunities create a healthy community structure for everyone. Good health for individuals is more than not being sick or getting routine medical care. The choices we make to be healthy depend on the options we have in our environment and within our means. The clinical care we receive, our lifestyles and our personal behaviors contribute to good individual health best when there is a foundation of strong community health. Individual health is rooted in the health of our community.
