Health Lessons

Create a culture of health one lesson at a time

Health Equity and Education

Everyone deserves a just opportunity to be healthy. We should pay special attention to those facing the greatest risk of poor health. No one should have difficulty achieving their potential because of their social position or systemic challenges that contribute to inequities.

The EmPOWERED to Serve health lessons offer a way to engage and motivate communities to create a culture of health. There are 12 science-based resources covering two essential areas: health education and community advocacy.

These 30-minute lessons engage communities and motivate people to create an enduring culture of health where the healthy choice is the easy choice.

Health Education

Only 20% of a person’s health is shaped by access to quality health care, but where people live could cost them up to two decades of life. Factors such as education, family income and access to healthy foods have an impact on life expectancy for people in under-resourced communities across the United States. These lessons help paint a picture of challenges and potential solutions.
