How Healthy Is My Community

Assessing the health of a community and determining how it can be improved is called Population Health. Making Virginia the healthiest state in the nation is a goal of the Virginia Department of Health and Three Rivers Health.

Well-being is defined as physical, emotional, and spiritual health and aging well. Information about this can be found in the VDH Virginia 2016-2020 Plan for Well-Being.
