Lifestyle Health Agenda

MDJunior's roadmap for bridging the health gap and creating sustainable change holistically
The Why

Our Guiding Framework

MDJunior's Lifestyle Health Agenda serves as our compass for understanding, enhancing, and championing holistic well-being. This model expands beyond traditional health paradigms by recognizing the intricate interplay of physical, mental, and emotional health. At its core, it inspires individuals to take control of their health by concentrating on three primary components: the North Star, the Levers of Holistic Lifestyle, and the Determinants of Health.

The Levers of Holistic Lifestyle serve as the foundational pillars of a healthy life, irrespective of one's unique circumstances.

MDJunior firmly believes that achieving these fundamental aspects of well-being is both attainable and a fundamental human right.

These levers create the groundwork for a Holistic Health Approach.

Underlying the disparities in public health are a range of personal and community circumstances that shape our landscape of health and wellness.

We've structured our set of Determinants of Health to help acknowledge and address the systemic issues, stigmas, blockers that impact the ability for an individual to live a healthy lifestyle in our communities.

It is critical for change-makers like us to understand the intersections between determinants of health and levers for holistic lifestyle that prevent one’s ability to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
