General Health

The Nine Network of Public Media, the Regional Health Commission, and other local partners have joined forces to improve health outcomes for people throughout the St. Louis region by providing trusted information and connections to available health services.


Better health outcomes for the people of our region depend on awareness and understanding of pressing health issues and their consequences as well as improved access to health care services for all ages. Our collaborative approach also includes finding solutions to conditions that impact the health environment of our region. The lives of individuals and the welfare of our region depend on our ability to combine our resources and work together as a community on issues as far ranging as addiction, abuse, neglect and homelessness to maternal health, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act.
