Together with many local, regional, and national partners, the CMHDRE works to provide services and education to community members on health topics such as diabetes, heart disease, nutrition, men's and women's health, and cancer. These partnerships allow the CMHDRE to broaden the reach of its programs and activities to have maximum impact on the community.
