The West Piedmont Health District (WPHD), The Harvest Foundation and a group of citizens called the Equity Collaborative have been working for months to better understand the needs of citizens from every census tract, ethnic, racial and income group.

Two separate but complementary studies uncover the health outcomes local residents experience. Information on infant mortality, chronic health conditions, education, economic wellbeing, housing, food access, transportation and other issues are included in the data sets.
