Herald Sun articles

In September 2006, the Access to Healthcare Committee began writing a monthly article for the Durham Herald-Sun newspaper on health issues for their “Healthy Living” section. In 2009, the Partnership invited all eight committees to submit monthly articles.  Below are articles previously printed. The Partnership for a Healthy Durham expresses its sincere thanks to the staff of the Herald-Sun for their collaboration on this project.
