What ‘Where Does it Hurt?’ | The NOHD is launching a health equity initiative, and is ready to expand its definition of what ‘health’ means for a city and its residents. This means looking beyond physical illnesses like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease, and broadening horizons to include mental health, trauma, food access, access to healthcare, regular incomes, affordable housing, and education. So together, the NOHD and Bring Your Own (with help from NOCCJ) join forces to ask: What’s chipping away at our health? And what can we do to heal?
