Local Health Buzz blog: Top 10 Posts of 2014

What a year 2014 has been. We really ramped up production on our blog, hearing more from guest bloggers on health and health care in our communities and nation. In fact, we posted just under 100 blog entries this year, and nearly three-quarters were from our grantees and community partners. We strive to highlight the work of our grantees and community partners, because truly, we want our blog to be a reflection of the wonderful work they do to create more equality in health care. (If you are interested in writing a post about a topic in health or health care, or how our funding is impacting the service of your clients, please contact Jennifer Sykes or Natasha Sims.)

As we wind the Local Health Buzz blog down for the year, we wanted to share our top blog posts of 2014. These posts were based on how many views each post got from you, our wonderful readers.

We have lots of great blog posts planned for you in the coming year. From all of us at Health Forward and the Local Health Buzz blog, we hope you have a healthy and happy holiday season! Thanks for reading!
