The goodwin community health program started in 2015 with the goal of improving the health and well-being of people living in a medically underserved area of Indianapolis, Indiana. We want to create opportunities for people to engage in community life that will improve their mental health, decrease their risks for chronic disease, and promote healthy behaviors.
We’re planning to create a number of community health health programs in Indiana, mainly in Indianapolis and the southern part of the state. But these are also being used in some other cities in Indiana and elsewhere. It’s not just for people who are in a wheelchair, but also for people who are in a wheelchair in general.
