CMC/DHK Celebrates Community Health Improvement Week, June 1-7, 2014

June 03, 2014
Keene, NH

Community Health Improvement Week is a national event to raise awareness and increase understanding of community health improvement activities. At Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene, we believe that community health is about the health of all of us and the actions we take to ensure that everyone in our community has the opportunity to live healthy lives. Our programs include: family resource counseling, which assists with access to medical care, dental services and one-on-one assistance to apply for financial aid; school-based dental services for children through the Cheshire Smiles Program; tobacco cessation services through the Coalition for Tobacco Free Communities; free health education classes; Cheshire Walkers group; Senior Passport healthy meal program; emergency preparedness through the Greater Monadnock Public Health Network; HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living); and Healthy Monadnock 2020 with the goal of becoming the healthiest community in the nation.

For more information about these programs, please contact our Community Health Department at 603-354-5400 or visit us at http://www.cheshire-med.com/health_wellness/hw_programs.html
