Health and Well-Being for All, Meeting in a Box

Date of Review: October, 2018

This resource is a comprehensive curriculum created by CDC that explores the root causes of health and illness in both patients and community. It contains very detailed simulation modules and accompanying visual materials; facilitator and participant dialogue guides; data cards and can facilitate multiple active learning scenarios for participants. Specifically the three modules are on topics on asthma; gang violence and obesity. This resource can be used in many ways and has a plethora of information so could inform multiple lesson plans for all health professional students learning about social medicine; advocacy; community assets; and inter professional education. What I really like about this tool is that is very easy for any teacher to use as it has very clear directions for educators and facilitators. The only issue with this resource is the cost, but it does have a lot of value and can be used in many ways. I am hoping to incorporate it into our curricula through an inter-professional workshop series with our community based educators and all of our health professional students.
