HEALTHY LIVING is a community based health promotion and disease prevention initiative which will help newcomers in their efforts to assess and address their risks of diabetes, cancer and heart health.
We are improving the health self-efficacy of the community through activities grounded in local resources and supports including foreign trained health care professionals, established cultural practices, local nutrition initiatives and physical fitness activities.
We are achieving awareness, access, community prevention and participation in better health practices and individual health management. Building on cultural health practices and starting at the ground level with familiar, trusted Community Assistants as coaches and mentors, residents identify and address social, language, cultural and other issues to modify their health behaviors.
Surrounding individuals and the community with appropriate local, familiar support creates conditions of openness to participate in a variety of improved health practices in a sustainable effort to improve the well-being of our community. Join one of our programs now.
