Business and community health go hand in hand.
Healthy communities mean healthy economies. Healthy economies mean healthy communities. It’s that simple. But community health, like individual health, is dependent on much more than
freedom from pain or disease.
Health, or its lack, is the result of a myriad of elements – often spanning the social, economic, political, physical and environmental arenas – all woven together. Practically all community issues have an impact on, or are impacted by, the overall health of the whole community and are best approached as comprehensively as possible. Getting to healthy communities and economies takes commitment, and many thriving communities have successfully tackled health through fundamental and innovative collaboration. Lodi, and the surrounding areas, can do the same. It’s essential for our residents; it’s essential for our successful businesses. Poor health, and the cost of poor health inhibit economic viability and job creation. And the reverse is true as well – the lack of a viable local economy
can be devastating to community health.
