Many risk factors for disability or death are preventable, and HHS Extension is dedicated to helping individuals and families improve their quality of life.

 In order to address health concerns on a community level, residents and organizations have been coming together to form local Community Health Coalitions. These coalitions can be a means of conserving and utilizing resources more efficiently, and a powerful vehicle in impacting health though policy, systems, and environmental changes.
