Universal Access to Health Promotion: A Sustainable Strategy to Reduce Health Disparities, Improve the Health of an Entire State, and Accelerate the Evolution of Health Promotion

We need your help thinking through a rather bold idea: making Universal Access to Health Promotion to a reality.

That reality has the potential to improve the health of entire states, reduce health disparities and accelerate the evolution of health promotion.

A white paper released by Dr. Michael O’Donnell, founder and chair emeritus of Health Promotion Advocates in December 2017 describes a strategy that has potential to provide universal access to health promotion in a cost effective and sustainable way, and create thousands of new health promotion jobs in the process…but, it is very much a work in process. We need your help identifying and filling gaps in the approach.  This effort is described is discussed in a webinar panel discussion held on February 26, 2018.

Health Promotion Advocates role in advancing this campaign is to engage professional associations, health promotion providers, health plans, employers, scientists, foundations and individual health promotion practitioners in embracing it.  Please help us in this effort by sharing the white paper and webinar with the organizations you know, encouraging them to get involved and introducing us to them.
