Health is a state of complete, physical, mental and social well-being.  The impact of good health goes way beyond medical care and the health care system.  Good health often depends on personal choice and responsibility however; people's health behaviors are also shaped by environments and conditions for which they have little or now control
Material and pre-natal care is essential for healthy infants.  Healthy babies are at a low risk of future, preventable health problems and are better prepared to learn in school and succeed in life.
Many preventable health conditions may be reduced or prevented through education, training or counseling services -  i.e. alcohol and substance abuse training, health education for teens, nutrition and more.
When people are healthy they have the capacity to enjoy their lives and to provide for their families. Helping people to achieve good health and maintain their independence means a better more successful community for all of us.
