  • Reflection Question
    Family Natural Paints
    How do environmental health, community health, and your family's health intersect?

    One example is through air pollution: without a good number of trees and too many people/businesses polluting, the environment's health is poor/poor air quality exists which impacts the whole community's health and my family's as we go outside and breath in the air. This leads to longer term health issues in the community which might limit access to healthcare or increase the cost of things like health insurance, leading to even more health issues for my family and the community.
