Community Health Boards
A Community Health Board is a committed group of volunteers from your community who are working together to improve health.
The Community Health Board meets with residents and organizations concerning various factors that affect health, such as physical environment, education, employment, personal health practices and social support networks. The CHB works with other groups and organizations to improve the health of our community. In Annapolis Valley Health there are five Community Health Boards covering Kings and Annapolis Counties.
