EmPOWERED To Serve (ETS) exists to improve health within multicultural communities. Community can be defined in many ways and EmPOWERED To Serve embraces that. You may consider your extended family, neighborhood, or church your community. It may be your apartment complex, school, or the city or social organizations in which you participate. EmPOWERED To Serve has something for everyone looking to improve their health and make an impact on health within their communities.
Are you seeking to improve your personal health? You’ve come to the right place. Here you will find tools and resources that will help you gain knowledge as your strive to reach your ideal health.
Are you a leader in your community? Become an Ambassador. Alone you can take steps to improve your own health, but together we can work to improve the health of an entire community. Make a positive impact within your sphere of influence. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association has additional tools and resources for organizational leaders such as the My Life Check Assessment, Organizational Environmental Assessment, webinars and ETS Health Lessons to name a few. These resources help drive environmental improvements that will build a culture of health within your organization or community. Our hope is that the healthy choice becomes the easy choice, if not the default choice.
