The health of a community is affected by a number of factors that include education, income, housing, transportation and access to healthcare. Counties play a pivotal role in setting community health priorities, developing programs to implement those priorities and foster important partnerships to sustain health improvement. This workshop is the second of a two-part series addressing the fundamental question: What makes a county healthy? Building on part one, What is a Healthy County, national experts will actively engage attendees in an interactive conversation on building a healthy county.
