Health is universally regarded as a human right.
Yet, half the world's population lacks access to necessary healthcare services.
THIS is the health gap.
The health gap refers to disparities created by the social determinants of health, such as race, gender, socioeconomic status, and geography. .
THIS is the task of our generation.
Lifestyle choices shape our daily well-being in today's world.
Over our years of public health activism we've centralized on key focus areas.
We call these ‘Levers’ you can pull for a holistic life.
Yet, it's not just about personal decisions.
The health gap is a mirror to larger societal dynamics; to create true change we need to take a systems-based approach.
We aim to expose the influence of ‘Determinants’ beyond individuals' control.
MDJunior's Lifestyle Health Agenda™ aims to shine a light on the interconnectedness between individual health and societal well-being, examining the health gap holistically to empower our movement to take collective action and truly move the needle.
