We are a coalition of community members, public officials, health practitioners, and health organizations whose mission it is to identify critical unmet needs and seek ways to address them.  Founded by the Dukes County Commissioners, we promote community-wide health and wellness through the development of a cooperative, integrated health care network and through public education.  For those interested in serving on the Council, a volunteer application may be found on the following link.
