What is Community Health?
Community Health focuses on the physical and mental well-being of people in a specific region. Health impacts every aspect of life, from a child’s ability to learn to an adult’s ability to work, therefore it is critical for education and financial security. Working at the community level brings about the greatest health benefits to the greatest number of people in need.
