FOCUS AREA 4
We all want to be healthy but that can be hard if the right supports aren’t in place. For example, it can be hard to eat healthy when it’s too expensive to buy fresh and local fruits and vegetables, they’re not sold in your neighborhood, or they’re not offered in the schools. It can be hard to be physically active when places like streets, sidewalks, and parks aren’t easy, safe, and enjoyable to use. And it can be hard to manage a chronic disease, like diabetes, when you aren’t connected to a system that helps you do so.
