Collective Capacity to Become one of the Top 5 Healthiest States in the Country
Facilitated by Susan Detwiler
Creating Delaware’s Future/Healthy Neighborhoods
Members of the local health care, social services and arts communities brainstormed what it would take to make Delaware one of the five healthiest states in the country. The cornerstone of this effort is the Healthy Neighborhoods Committee, which works to design integrated and collaborative local solutions to improve the health of all Delaware residents.
In the discussion led by Julane Miller-Armbrister, Executive Director of the Delaware Center for Health Innovation, participants agreed that good health in Delaware extends beyond access to medical care – it must also link to civic engagement, economic development, public safety and more.
