Small Steps to Health & Wealth

first_imgBy Molly C. HerndonDr. Barbara O’Neill will be presenting a 90-minute webinar on the national Cooperative Extension program, Small Steps to Health and Wealth on behalf of the Military Families Learning Network’s Personal Finance team and the Child and Family Learning Network on July 29 at 11 a.m. ET.The Small Steps to Health and Wealth initiative encourages participants to make positive behavior changes to simultaneously improve their health and personal finances. Developed by Dr. Barbara O’Neill and Dr. Karen Ensle at Rutgers University, Small Steps to Health and Wealth encourages participants to make positive behavior changes to simultaneously improve their health and personal finances.  It is believed to be the first long-term program ever developed to motivate Americans to simultaneously apply the same personal behavior change strategies to both areas of their lives.  SSHW was developed because many Americans have both health and financial “issues.”  Societal problems that have been widely reported in recent years include an increasing incidence of diabetes, overweight, and obesity, low household savings, high household debt levels, and bankruptcy filings. The SSHW program includes 25 behavior change strategies that people can adopt to address these concerns. Each involves taking small positive steps that people can put into practice on a daily basis.This webinar will begin by describing relationships between people’s health and personal finances. It will then describe each one of the 25 behavior change strategies and how people can apply them to their lives.This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on June 16, 2014.last_img read more
