ORGANIZE & ADVOCATE
Host events or reach out to policy makers in your community.
Launch a Wellness Program
Launch a wellness program at your company or organization. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers a comprehensive toolkit, training, and assessments. You may also want to check with your organization’s health insurance provider for resources and ideas.
Advocate for Policies
Advocate for policies that improve access to affordable health care, support evidence-based health promotion programs, provide screenings and assessments, address health inequities, and encourage healthy behaviors. Write to or call your local and state policy makers, such as members of the Missouri Senate and House of Representatives.
Encourage Teens in Your Community
If you are a parent to a teen or work with teens, encourage them to become trained Teenage Health Consultants to share information on healthy behaviors and community resources with their peers.
