SULLIVAN 180 is training a cadre of local Community Health Champions to serve as healthy living champions and coaches for friends, neighbors and colleagues ready to improve their health. Community Health Champions are trained in health education and health coaching techniques and are familiar with local resources. These peer volunteers work in their own neighborhoods, churches, and civic organizations. They work one and one and with small “wellness circles” offering health education and tips and motivation for people who are taking proactive steps to improve their health. They work on areas such as; smoking cessation, improved diet and exercise regimes or stress reduction. Groups meet regularly to support one another and share experiences as they pursue healthier lifestyles together. This innovative model is a way to help people adopt healthier behaviors that are meaningful and sustainable.
