Health – Improving People’s Health

United Way addresses pressing health and healthcare issues facing communities across the country. United Way and our partners agencies target childhood obesity, health insurance coverage, healthcare quality, childhood immunizations, substance abuse, family violence, oral health or other healthcare concerns voiced by their community.

We’re working to improve the health of the Central Georgia area.  We must all become more aware of health risks and the potential effects they have on ourselves and others, starting from before birth. And working to change policies and practices, such as extending health care coverage, will enable more people to live healthier lives.
