Why You Should Use This Site
A Relevant Note ...
On February 18, 2010, an article was published in both the Scranton Times and the Citizens' Voice declaring that NEPA counties are among the state's least healthy. "The report's authors hope the rankings will be a catalyst for change in communities across the country - that community leaders, across all sectors, will use it to learn about and work to change what is making residents unhealthy." The newspaper article concludes with a question (from the University of Scranton's Daniel West, Ph.D., a member of the Healthy Northeast Pennsylvania Initiative: "The question is, with limited resources, where do we begin?"
It is our hope that this website will serve as one of those beginning steps.
