Building healthy communities is about more than people getting exercise.

It also involves mental health and economic health, just for starters.  These items and more are on the table for the "Next, Now" conference coming to Grants Pass next week (October 10-11). 

Community leaders in a number of fields will talk about building stronger, more resilient communities, by recognizing the prevalance of ACEs, Adverse Childhood Experiences. 

Southern Oregon Success is among the partners, and contributors include ACE Interface, which works at improving public health.  Laura Porter from ACE Interface visits, with Jackson County Mental Health Clinical Operations Manager Rick Rawlins.
