Practitioner spotlight:

"The Metrics for Healthy Communities website fed my imagination. It made me feel that change is possible and spurred me to go further. Using the Community Health Center model, I was able to go into the senior center in my community and propose the possibility of having a community garden. We also talked about physical activities and how we could improve our existing offerings. I love that everything is all in one spot. I can't wait to dig into the Childcare Center model. This website has everything that makes up a healthy community. From my perspective as a community health worker, it nails it!"
