This activity guide is designed for community health educators to organize discussion-based activities for adults and seniors. These activities aim to increase the participants’ awareness of heart disease through a strategic public health model. Community members will review scenarios about heart disease risk and share personal experiences about living in a heart healthy way. Health educators can conduct these activities in clinics, community centers, schools, senior centers, parks, and even in someone’s home. The key is to educate in fun, engaging ways. By the end of the discussions, the participants will have acquired the knowledge, self-confidence, and motivation to begin leading heart healthy lives.
