In 2015, we gathered feedback on what makes a healthy, equitable community in five visioning workshops and multi-lingual surveys. Remarkably, while the participants were diverse and conversations differed slightly across workshops, the vision was nearly identical. Ten key components for creating healthy, equitable communities were identified.
The strategies presented in our strategic plan are based on this extensive community feedback, as well as local health data, research, and best practices for creating healthy, equitable communities.
