Mid-Hudson Regional Community Health Assessment (2019-2021)
Sullivan County Health Improvement Plan (2019-2021)

very three years, the New York State Department of Health requires Local Health Departments and hospitals to submit Community Health Assessments, Community Service Plans, and Community Health Improvement Plans. These assessments and plans are meant to meet several requirements from state public health law and the Affordable Care Act.

In recent years, the New York State Department of Health has encouraged local hospitals and health departments to collaborate in the creation of these documents in order to better serve their communities.

“Collaboration is an essential element for improving population health in communities and in the State as a whole. Furthermore, working together to develop a community health assessment and community health improvement plan will reduce duplication and assist local health departments and hospitals to conduct this work in an effective, efficient manner”

– New York State Department of Health, 2013

PICKLEBALL FOR THE WIN

Pickleball looks a lot like tennis, but it’s played with light paddles on special courts. The ball looks like a whiffle ball. The paddle looks like the style used in table tennis. The game is becoming more and more popular as a way to be active. Here’s why. You can:

Socialize with others. As in tennis, you can play singles or doubles. That means there’s a social element. You’re not just working out. You’re having fun with friends.

Get a good workout. Pickleball allows for a good amount of action. You have to move around on the court and swing your paddle to hit the ball back and forth over the net.

Avoid overexerting yourself. You don’t need to be super fit to get started with pickleball. The court is smaller than a tennis court, so you don’t have to run as much. Also, the ball is lighter, and the paddle is both smaller and lighter.

If you’re looking for a new way to get more active, give pickleball a try. If you haven’t been active in a while or have any health conditions, talk with your doctor first. Visit Healthyroads.com today.
