Jane has a group of friends who eat unhealthy food and do not exercise.
Jane wants to get healthy, so she goes to the local health department and inquires about a microclinic program.
She can’t join the microclinic program alone; she has to join with those who influence her and who she influences.
Jane and her microclinic group join other teams and learn how to safely and gradually change their own behavior as well as the behavior of those around them.
Jane’s microclinic group return to their homes and each person uses the info they learned to teach others how to change their behaviors in a positive, healthy way.
This process is what we call contagious health; our ultimate goal is to create a culture of health in under resourced communities around the world.
