Healthy Communities

StrongPeople Strong Hearts is a multilevel, multicomponent program that targets individual, social, and built environment levels of behavior change. It is designed to improve diet and physical activity behaviors, assess local food and physical environment resources, and shift social norms about active living and healthy eating. This 12-week program includes nutrition education, food and cooking demonstrations, progressive aerobic exercise and weight training, environmental assessments and mental wellness components.  

The StrongPeople Change Club program aims to empower residents to improve their food and physical activity environments through strategic civic engagement, capacity building activities, and collective action. The curriculum provides a step-wise process for people to assess the nutrition and physical activity environment of their community, prioritize an issue of concern, engage stakeholders, and develop and implement a plan that will catalyze sustainable and positive changes that can contribute to a culture of health and support health equity.
