Every 10 years since 1980, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) leverages scientific insights and lessons learned from the past decade, along with new knowledge of current data, trends, and innovations to formulate national objectives to promote health and prevent disease. Healthy People 2010 is the current effort in this area, and will soon to be updated by Healthy People 2020.
Attentive Health is honored to be able to contribute to this effort and offer our insights as a community stakeholder to help shape the future of this initiative. Thus far, we’ve joined the Healthy People Consortium and been asked to provide input via the public comment process. As the initiative moves forward, we look forward to further advancing the objectives of Healthy People 2020 by incorporating this national resource into our program planning. We encourage all of our colleagues in the wellness & health promotion industry to do the same!
