MARINETTE — A good diet and daily exercise will keep someone healthy, but if they can’t rely on a vehicle to get to the doctor or a childcare provider so they can keep a job, working out and getting their fruits and veggies is last on their list of priorities.

Marinette County has a stark need for affordable housing, reliable transportation and safe childcare, according to the first collaborative Community Health Assessment conducted by Marinette County Public Health with Provident Health Foundation and Aurora Medical Center - Bay Area.
