Here's how the Hub is organized
About healthy communities sets the stage for understanding the foundations for healthy communities, what determines health, and how chronic diseases and cancer can be prevented.
Build a healthy community helps get you started - from creating community connections, gathering local data to putting all the pieces into a workable whole and assessing the results.
Get inspired uncovers ideas and stories of what others are doing and provides an opportunity for you to share your unique experiences as well.
Take action provides more information on healthy environments and settings and includes in-depth strategies for community action in focused areas, such as healthy eating, physical activity and UV protection.
Resources includes a bounty of tools, resources, funding, learning opportunities and organizations available to support planning, implementation and evaluation.
