Building Healthy Communities starts with you.
When you think of a healthy community, it can actually mean a lot of things. Typically, a healthy community is dependent on the people who formulate it, the environment where a quality education system is implemented, safe neighborhoods with low crime rate and continuous flow of healthy employment opportunities that will nurture the community residents. Building such healthy communities is not possible by a single person's effort, instead, it has to be a collaborative effort where people come together and build sustainable community.
