SEAHEC Publishes New Documentary on Winchester Heights

Winchester Heights – A Model for Community Empowerment

Our new documentary chronicles SEAHEC’s work over the past decade to create a community health worker driven rural development model.  By helping communities build key infrastructure and organizational capacity, we can lower barriers to creating a safe and healthy community for families in low-income, rural communities. Our model, developed through  our Healthy Farms Program, can be adapted by other rural communities that lack public health supporting infrastructure. We have made a short version, about 5 minutes, and full version is about 20 minutes.
