Health Is A Community Affair

Achieving and maintaining optimum health is a philosophy; a way of life; a lifestyle. It means commitment to the best health possible for each individual, every family and the community. It starts with individuals giving careful and continuous thought to the concept of health for themselves and the community. Education, personal and community values, belief systems, art, religion and spiritual life prepare individuals for this task. Health is a community affair and artful living.

Dr. Albert Schweitzer proposed that civilization depends upon the spiritual and ethical development of the individual and the degree of worthiness of its individual members. Socioeconomic culture plays a role through the influence of personal interaction and the impact of business and finances on choices and decisions. Good health is as much a group activity as it is individual responsibility. The thoughts and ideas of a society determine what actions the society performs.
