Community Integrated Health is the effort to strengthen the linkages between traditional healthcare and community based prevention strategies in order to help individuals prevent, delay, or live better with chronic disease conditions. Community Integrated Health:
- Increases access to care
- Lowers cost
- Prevents and addresses chronic disease
- Reduces the effects of some social determinants of health
The Foothills Area YMCA will be offering Chronic Disease Prevention programs that addresses conditions such as high blood pressure, cancer, and pre-diabetes.
Partnerships are being formed with local businesses to help lower healthcare costs for employers and employees.
Interested employees and healthcare providers are encouraged to join us in this initiative.
