Blueprint for Action Report
Through the Healthier Somerset coalition, a Leadership Team was formed to create this "Blueprint for Action" to enhance overall health and wellness and health equity in Bound Brook & South Bound Brook.
Over a year, the Leadership Team developed the "Blueprint for Action" which included:
Research on current health outcomes and challenges to health and wellness within the two communities;
Engagement of local officials and community leaders to understand challenges to health and wellness in the community, and to explore potential strategies to make changes in systems and policies to promote health and wellness and health equity;
Examination of best practices to help choose priorities in Bound Brook and South Bound Brook, and
Dialogue with residents to learn how to best address their needs, with a strong focus on the underlying factors that affect health and wellness including socioeconomic conditions, access to care, and the built environment.
