In every community and every stage of life, the people of Richmond deserve the opportunity to enjoy good health. But for too long, our health has been determined less by our choices than by our skin color, address, income, schools, and language.
Building a Culture of Health means shifting the way we think, talk, and act about health. It means confronting the forces behind inequality, like bad planning and investment decisions, unequal distribution of power and resources, racism, and prejudice. It means valuing the strengths of every person, and building on those strengths to become a healthier city.
