Healthcare Professionals and Advocates
Hospital administrators, physicians, nurses, and other health leaders can see where the health problems are and work to identify and create solutions. As leaders in healthcare, you are a trusted source for delivering health information to the community and a natural leader for collaborative efforts to create stronger, healthier communities.
All of us have a role to play in raising awareness about the multiple factors that affect our health and the health of our communities. As a healthcare leader, you are uniquely positioned to engage and influence decision makers within and outside of your organization to create a healthier community. Think of this as a user’s guide to the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, which can help healthcare professionals and advocates identify the underlying causes of health problems and work to create solutions. By getting involved, you can help state and local leaders prevent and address the health problems you see every day in the clinics and hospitals where you work.
