Who Makes This Program?
The program was created by a multidisciplinary team at MyHealthyGlobe.com and the Force for Health Foundation. As you begin to do your Share it activities, some of you will create content that if it passes review, will allow the program to be improved by people such as yourself. The core tools used to create the program were provided by the Force for Health Community Health Platform.
The goal is to have a collaborative community where we all support each other in advancing our own knowledge, skills, and resources. As you perform Share it activities, posts, songs, and events, these resources may eventually be used as Learn its opportunities for others.
