Public Health’s Focus on how environments impact health, our ZIP codes remain a
more accurate determinant of health than our genetic codes. As a society, we
have a collective responsibility to create conditions that allow all members of
our communities to live healthy lives.
The Department of Health is holding four regional events across the Commonwealth to bring together different sectors (e.g. business, education, housing, transportation, etc.) to have a conversation about how we can create conditions that allow all members of our communities to live healthy lives.
