Way to Wellville, helping everyone to learn from experience in health and wellness and economic and environment development at the community level.

“We know what to do”

We need to give people the tools to manipulate their own lives and health.

Like a Personal Trainer. You have to do the work.
The community has to take ownership of the commitments and deliverables.

Getting buy-in is important. This is the role of community leaders. What works in their own community.

“We don’t want todo pilots. We want to roll out something that works”

Applicants have to have a multi-party involvement.

Share responsibilities instead of doing redundant work.

Health inequities

Huge issue.
Constantly learning.
