Our place is a special one.
Natural beauty and tight-knit towns have created a strong sense of place, but with a relatively small and disperse population our region is also impacted by:
- A small social sector
- Limited town and state spending
- Underdeveloped public transportation, broadband, and cellular service
- Hidden poverty
Conditions that influence health
A person’s well-being is powerfully influenced by factors outside of medical care such as access to food, safe and stable housing, and the opportunity for positive childhood experiences.
