Achieving good health requires us all to become more aware of health risks and the potential effects they have, starting from before birth. Good health helps to ensure children are prepared for kindergarten and that they succeed during their school years. Poor health can prevent families and individuals from being financially stable. United Way is working to extend access to health care and related services that will enable more people to live healthier lives.
Health is essential to a quality of life. Quality health keeps children on track in school and adults productive at work.
