The health of your zip code
By The PHCD Team | August 18, 2016
Here at PHCD, we're loving this article - Building Healthy Communities One Zip Code at a Time - from the Public Health Institute!
The article calls out the importance of cross-sector collaboration in order to improve the health of a community. This article reflects the important work of CHIPA (that's the Community Health Initiative of the Petaluma Area), which brings together residents, health care and social service providers, schools, city staff, businesses, and nonprofits to identify Petaluma's most pressing health needs and develops shared strategies to address them. CHIPA is a Sub-Committee of the PHCD Board of Directors and a local chapter of Health Action.
All in all, an excellent read the power of working together in the name of public health!
