During the first 98 days of this year, I lead a team of amazing people in the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) health promotion campaign, the 1 Billion Steps Challenge. My team, DrCHHuntley and Friends, finished in 6th place out of 392 teams! We are super proud of that accomplishment. What I learned through this experience was far beyond anything that I had imagined when I started. In this episode, I share my journey and the lessons learned along the way. As I share these lessons and my story, I encourage you to consider leading a health promotion campaign and provide you with some resources to get started.
Resources mentioned in this episode:
Building a faith based community health promotion campaign
Leading a health promotion campaign using online tools and technology
Finding volunteer opportunities to gain experience
Professional networking in public health – conferences and social media
