Goal and Impact
Good health is the sum of many things, so it takes nurses working with experts in other fields to strengthen well-being for all. Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, social workers, and others in health care need to coordinate with each other as well as with those in education, business, transportation, community development, and many other sectors. A community whose leaders work together in a systemic way, providing incentives to encourage industries and sectors to see health as a mutual goal, provides all who live there more options for healthy living.
