MAD COOL COMMUNITY
MAD COOL COMMUNITY is a wellness non-profit providing health services to underserved urban communities at risk for health disparities. The mission of MAD COOL COMMUNITY is to help individuals and communities to achieve their highest potential and happiness using good health as a foundational and activating element.
From a social-ecological perspective, individual health is a function of the broader social and physical environments, and policies and structures that impact health. All of these factors must work together to create an ecosystem of health. On an individual health behavior level, MAD COOL COMMUNITY offers physical fitness classes, nutrition classes, health coaching/health behavior change classes. These holistic wellness programs are based on founder Dr. Jennifer Turner’s personal wellness journey and training, as well as proven models for health behavior change.
What is a MAD COOL COMMUNITY?
A MAD COOL COMMUNITY is an economically and socially healthy, vibrant community, free of racism and violence, with equitable access to healthcare, places for friends and families to engage in physical activity, and physical and economic access to healthy foods.
A MAD COOL COMMUNITY is an empowered community that leverages community stakeholders to unlock the power of their community for the betterment of its people. Agents of empowerment include schools, universities, houses of worship, state and city leadership overseeing community planning and urban development, hospitals, healthcare providers, corporations who are invested in the community.
Challenges to a MAD COOL COMMUNITY
- Mistrust of the healthcare system
- Lack of access to care
- Lack of economic opportunity
- Lack of education
As an anchor institution in communities, schools are uniquely positioned to play a powerful role not only in improving the health of its children, but also the health of their parents and the broader community in which these schools exist. MAD COOL COMMUNITY focuses on building health (and life) resiliency and capacity by empowering students, teachers, and parents with the health knowledge and healthy lifestyle skills they need to be MAD COOL, thereby raising the health status of the overall community.
MAD COOL COMMUNITY also partners with other mission-aligned organizations to overcome the aforementioned challenges to creating vibrant, healthy communities.
The coronavirus has exposed the weaknesses in our healthcare system, the social, racial, and economic inequities, and highlighted an urgent necessity for us to not go back to where we were, but to re-build our communities stronger, better, healthier than they were before.
