Help Yourself to Better Health Campaign



The Help Yourself to Better Health Campaign is about helping people take charge of their lives by taking control of their health. We know that evidence-based self-management programs play a major role in living well and aging well; now it’s time to make sure EVERYBODY knows this and is motivated to take steps to avoid injury and improve their health.


Goals of the Campaign

1) Increase public awareness of and engagement in evidence-based health promotion programs, and

2) Ensure access to programs by advocating for funding to support and implement evidence-based health promotion programs that prevent injury and improve wellness.


Join the Movement!  

If you have an on-going health problem or are at risk for an illness or injury, there are things you can do to help yourself to better health. Check out the evidence-based programs we have to offer by clicking on the Find a Workshop box at right.  There you will find a variety of programs in communities throughout Wisconsin that you can sign-up for that will help you take charge of your health.


If you're a health promotion program Leader, Coordinator, Volunteer or have a personal or professional interest in motivating people to take charge of their health through evidence-based programs, we want you!  Beginning in June 2018 and running through June of 2019, we will be developing materials, planning activities and events, and holding calls to let you know all about it and how you can participate.  If you're interested and want to get involved, contact Kris Krasnowski to join the campaign distribution list and get invitations to campaign conference calls.
