- When it comes to health, doctors and hospitals often focus on treating disease and injury that has already occurred – but the overburdened health care system doesn't always have the resources to help patients improve health behaviors and prevent disease. Even when those services are available, many people don't pursue health education or wellness services through their medical providers because of the high costs or lack of convenience. Community Health Programs have become a great way to meet this need.Whether it’s the dance class at the local community center, the disease management program at the senior center, or the health seminar held at a local school, Community Health Programs are popping up everywhere and have become an effective way of helping to reach people outside of traditional healthcare environments. These programs can:• educate community members about health and wellness topics• provide opportunities to improve strength, balance, and flexibility• create fun environments that promote social interaction• offer guidance on disease management and prevention• focus on specific concerns, like preventing falls• improve the overall quality of lifeSince Community Health Programs work to address the specific health issues that affect individual communities, they can cover a diverse range of topics. Many offer classes about how to manage conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure, how to prevent obesity, and how to eat better or move more. These programs also address issues related to mental wellness, substance abuse, reproductive health, and other concerns.Research has shown that Community Health Programs have far-reaching benefits for a wide range of community members. One study found that seniors not only stuck with a community-based exercise and nutrition program over six months, but they showed better medical outcomes and lower rates of depression at the program's conclusion. A community-based fall prevention program reduced falls among the elderly by 31%, and community health outreach programs helped diabetes patients reduce emergency room visits by 38% and hospitalizations by 30%. Another program helped to lower rates of unsafe sex amongst middle school students.At Strive, our Community Health Program services are built on tenants that ensure consistency, quality, and evidence-based best practices for every initiative we create.
