|Multi-Cultural Initiatives Department||The Most Powerful Voices Gospel Concert & Health Expo|
|The Multi-Cultural Initiatives Department (MCI) works to empower communities as well as individuals to develop heart-healthy habits and promote healthy lifestyle changes that will assist with changing the perception that stroke and heart disease is inevitable and that it is preventable. |
We know that to reach that goal it will take a “Mega” community of partners; all working together to create a sustainable culture of health. A “Culture of Health” in which living healthier lives is the default choice built into the fabric of where people live, work, worship, and play.
Vision: transforming environments through the creation of a sustainable culture of health in multicultural communities.
• Impact cultural norms for a healthier environment
• Build powerful partnerships
• Meet people where they are
• Increase healthy lifestyle behaviors
• Increase chain of survival
• Sustainably transform multicultural communities
