About Us

About US

Who we are

We are an organization dedicated to creating a culture of wellness for an individual, group, or community. We empower people to be stewards of their own health by learning how to make healthy decisions, and then share that knowledge with others.

What we do

We create applications and programs that allow people and communities focus on health and wellness by getting them to move and learn while raising money for charity.

Our Goals

Our goal is to improve the health of the community by encouraging individuals to take responsibility for their own health through education, making healthy choices, and being an example for others in order to help them do the same.

The Force for Health program was created by a multidisciplinary team at the JC Blair Memorial Hospital, Juniata College, and My Healthy Globe Technology Innovations.
