How can we respond to this global health crisis?
How can we bridge the gap between community and well being?As a solution, how can this be community-focused, inclusive, and age-appropriate? Does the fact that most lifestyle diseases including obesity, lack a specific prerequisite, but is rather reflective of the way we live, mean that we start as young as possible?How far would create and expanding awareness and guidance work as a solution to growing health concerns? How can it be made accessible and wholesome?
Design challenge: Develop a solution for a Center of Wellness, a space that encourages, simplifies, informs, and guides holistic community health.
As a solution, how can this be community-focused, inclusive, and age-appropriate? Does the fact that most lifestyle diseases including obesity, lack a specific prerequisite, but is rather reflective of the way we live, mean that we start as young as possible?
