Health in our Community

“We are conducting a study of health and wellness in Robeson, Scotland, and Hoke counties. What do you already know about these issues in our area? What did you learn from the readings/videos we’ve engaged with so far? What questions do you have about community health and wellness in our area?”


I have no knowledge of the three counties that the study is being done on, but I am very to learn the history of the community. I learned much from the class discussions and readings for instance, that higher income areas have better medical coverage than the poor do. Also, higher income areas better areas that safer to practice healthier life styles than lower wage areas do. One of the most interesting question I have is, “What do people think of the lack of doctors and Hospitals, and how does this effect them economically and socially?”
