Community Health

The health and wellness of Health Share members are affected by a number of issues and social determinants.

  • Social environment
  • Poverty
  • Housing
  • Education
  • Access to healthy food
  • Mental health and substance abuse
  • Chronic disease
  • Transportation
  • Safe neighborhoods

Health Share is working on initiatives and health improvement plans that focus on prevention and wellness, on building a healthy community for our members and our entire community. 

Our staff, our partners and our Community Advisory Council are working on population health, because in order to improve health outcomes for our members we have to get ahead of the curve and begin to focus on prevention. We can no longer focus just on the individuals in a clinical setting, we have to move further out into the community to support health in our members' families and neighborhoods.
