Abstract

This report highlights wellness initiatives from the perspective of two population segments: those with chronic condition, or those who may be at risk for chronic conditions, and high-risk populations, which this project defines as those living below the federal poverty level who engage in behaviors that potentially lead to avoidable health problems. The rationale was that these groups require extensive resources and that it would be easier to identify gaps in community wellness support for these populations.
