Where we live affects how we live
A new report by the Orange County Health Care Agency and its partners demonstrates how health is affected by where we live, work, learn, and play. The “Healthy Places, Healthy People” report provides city, school district, and other census data on economic, educational, and community factors that influence physical health and well-being. Amy Bach, Division Manager of Health Promotion at the Orange County Health Care Agency, explains to KFWB’s Maggie McKay and Michael Shappee that where we live has consequences on our health.
