New Hampshire’s beautiful rivers, mountain ranges, and lakes define
our lives and the history of our towns. They can also create barriers between
our residents and the activities and services that improve their health. Many
of us rely on public transportation or family and friends to get us to and from
health care visits, food shopping, work, and family and community events.
Access to oral, mental, primary and specialty health care can be a significant
challenge, whether it’s a few blocks or several hours away. The Endowment has
approached the issue of geographic barriers by focusing on both ends of the
problem – seeking better ways of moving the people to services and seeking
better ways of getting the services to where people can access them.
