Produced by WHF Senior Program Officer, Paulette Parker, this report collects and analyzes the publically-available, community-level health and health-related data. The goal of the report is to transform the data into actionable knowledge. It is our hope that the report will facilitate community dialogue, inform health and human service providers and decision makers, and serve as a catalyst for collaborative approaches that will address identified needs and gaps. In many cases, the findings in the report highlight disparities in health opportunities and outcomes among different segments of our community.
