Education and Knowledge are needed to support Healthy Lifestyles. The Healthy Individuals Team promotes health from a multi-dimensional approach. The model used by our team includes the dimensions of social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, intellectual and physical and financial wellbeing. Each of these seven dimensions are integrated in a way that contributes to our own quality of life.
Support Systems and Networks are needed for Individuals to lead Healthy Lifestyles. We encourage systems, organizations and community partners to support our community members in achieving positive health outcomes where they live, work and play.
Health Equity drives our work so that everyone has the fair opportunity to achieve their highest level of wellbeing. Health determinants include living, working and environmental conditions, as well as education, social inclusion, and access to medical care.
The team understands that Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivators drive behavior change. Community members are encouraged and challenged to set goals to improve their personal health and wellbeing. Live Algoma offers opportunities for individuals to engage and participate in activities that provide recognition and reward from community businesses, as well as gaining the personal reward of better health.
