Virginia health strengths

Very low rate of violent crimes
High use of prenatal care
Virginia health challenges
A lot of adults smokes tobaccos
Very polluted air
Moderate amount of people are covered by immunization
Community organizations and healthcare providers in the state of Virginia have formed a coalition called the Project Immunize Virginia which aims at extending the immunization coverage to all residents of the state and thereby helping reduce the rate of preventable diseases and disorders. A website www.immunizeva.org has also been developed to provide more information.
Since there are noticeable inequalities in terms of access to health care facilities, the Virginia Office of Minority Health and Health Equity has been working to pinpoint the causes of these disparities and working to address this problem to ensure a more decent distribution of health resources among the residents of Virginia.

Jun 15, 2015 -- Sanitation worker helps ailing woman
Gul Nabi spent his Friday filling in for a garbage truck route in lieu of his usual job in street maintenance. His truck passed by a woman that apparently was in distress. Nabi went immediately to the woman’s aid. She was choking on a pill and was losing a lot of oxygen. Nabi performed CPR on the woman and was able to extract the lodged pill. He sought assistance from someone nearby, and left without any need of praise or reward. That didn’t stop the woman from thanking Nabi through his bosses. His act of random kindness certainly saved her life.
