The Cowichan Communities Health Profile has identified some important data about what is impacting the health and well being of residents in the valley.
The report was presented by Central Island Health Medical Health Officer, Dr. Paul Hasselback, on Thursday at VIU’s Cowichan Campus.
Hasselback says there was a lot of positive information that came out of the report.
Hasselback says some of the negatives include people living below low-income levels, more children starting kindergarten that are not prepared and health risk factors associated with alcohol.

You can find the report at the Our Cowichan Community Health Network website.
