Communities can create affordable health services

Communities can create affordable health services: "Through its Community Voices program, the Kellogg Foundation has seen this approach work in 13 communities across the country. Community Voices has created coalitions including businesses, schools and citizens' groups. With their combined buying power, they work to identify and provide the kinds of services that local people ask for. Depending on the community, this might be asthma prevention, pregnancy testing or diabetes screening. Addressing problems before they become chronic keeps children in school and helps working adults stay more productive and financially secure. "
