2012 was a productive year and we are pleased to take this opportunity to highlight the changes in policy and plans, the execution of projects and delivery of programs that occurred.

It is the synergy and support in these relationships which fuels us forward towards our vision of creating communities that will help help prevent each resident from developing a preventable disease.
