Top Community Health Concerns for Westchester and Putnam Counties

United Way of Westchester and Putnam recently conducted its “2013 Community Conversations Survey” in the two counties, and the results of the Health survey were particularly interesting.

Top Health Concerns for Westchester residents:

  • affordable healthcare and screening
  • dealing with chronic illness
  • stresses of daily life
  • obesity or unhealthy living

 

Top Health Concerns for Putnam residents:

  • mental health
  • affordable healthcare and screening
  • drug and alcohol use
  • dealing with chronic illness

If these are the top concerns for the two counties, HVCS is well-positioned to respond to these needs. We have programs that can assist with almost all of these needs, especially for those on Medicaid. For an infographic showing these top concerns and more, visit UWWP’s website.
