To encourage healthy eating and activity patterns in all of our neighborhoods.
To create a more balanced community.
If you think that community health promotion efforts are so much more than those two goals, ask yourself what else community health promotion is supposed to accomplish.
This is a question that has become more and more prevalent in our world. The goal of community health promotion is to encourage healthy eating and activity patterns in our neighborhoods.
In the past, some health promoters have promoted healthy eating and activity patterns in our communities by encouraging us to eat different foods, drive different types of cars, drink different beverages, and engage in sports. While these efforts are excellent, they aren’t really a focus of community health promotion. To be a healthy community, we need to encourage all kinds of healthy behaviors.
It isnt so much what we do, its what we dont do. If your neighborhood is very healthy, you dont need to do anything. If your neighborhood is not very healthy, you need to do something.
Good example here is community gardens, which are great. They are great because they are the mainstay of healthy eating and they are great for the whole community. But they arent the focus of community health promotion. The focus is on how our communities can be healthier.
The focus on our communities being healthy. This may be different than your focus on your community being healthy, but its also something that is important to you. Community gardens are great, but they arent the focus of community health promotion.
As a community, we all play a role in our communities being healthier. We all like to eat healthy foods, and we all like to go to community events to promote healthy eating. We all like to help each other and share our knowledge so these are great things to focus on, but they arent the focus of community health promotion.
I hope you’ve figured out this one! It’s the focus of community health promotion.
