Community Health Improvement (CHI) Week is a national event to recognize the important role health care organizations, health systems and communities have in advancing health and well-being by raising awareness, demonstrating impact and celebrating the individuals and organizations that are working together to improve their communities.
Community Health is a term used to describe the state of health and how easy or difficult it is to be healthy where people live, learn, work and play. The health of a community, including ease of access to medical care and community resources available for exercise and encouraging healthy habits, is an important part of healthy planning that can have a positive impact on a community before, during, and after a public health emergency.
You can help improve the health of your community by taking a look at your health and the health of your family. Take actions to ensure that you are as healthy as possible. If you eat well, get regular checkups and vaccinations, and are physically active, your body will be better able to handle the stress and physical demands of recovering from any issues. Washing your hands regularly can also help reduce your chances of getting sick during and after heightened sick seasons.
If you or a family member is feeling under the weather, call now, we have same-day appointments available and want to get you feeling better today! Help us at the Ear, Nose and Throat Institute promote health in our community by becoming more engaged by taking action to improve our community’s health!
