Nonprofit leaders who coordinate efforts to improve their communities can see where barriers to good health lie and work together to find solutions. Nonprofit leaders exist in many sectors, and are poised to build powerful collaborations to address the many factors that create health.
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 nonprofit leader, you are uniquely positioned to use the County Health Rankings as a call to action, informing your board members, funders, partners, agency constituents, congregants, and community members about the findings. Think of this as a user’s guide to the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, which can help nonprofit leaders identify the underlying causes of health problems and work to create solutions.
