Our definition of "health” is broad, holistic, relative and encompasses the potential in everyone. A healthy person is one who is poised for learning, growth and adaptability. A healthy organization generates more than material success. It creates an environment in which relationships are regarded as important and opportunities to learn, grow and contribute are available. It is poised to adapt. A healthy community is one in which its members are nurtured and valued, where information flows freely, where there is active interaction among diverse groups, and where institutions support the growth and development of all.
