We are pleased to present Understanding Our Health, the community health profile for South Shore Health.
The community health profile reports on some of the factors that influence the health of individuals, families and communities on the South Shore. It tells a story rooted in our communities that we hope will stimulate conversations both within our district and the broader community around current and emerging population health issues.
The profile is intended to support our ongoing efforts to create a healthier community by providing information that can be used for program planning and development. While data always has limitations, when combined with community voice and experience, the information in Understanding Our Health, forms a foundation for planning, deciding and acting together to improve the health of our communities.
