Action step guides

Each step on the Action Cycle is a critical piece of making communities healthier. There is a guide for each step that describes key activities within each step and provides suggested tools, resources, and additional reading. You can start at Assess or enter the cycle at any step. Work Together and Communicate sit inside because they are needed throughout the Cycle.

Guides for community members

At the core of the Action Cycle are people from all walks of life because we know we can make our communities healthier if we all get involved. There is a guide for each of the different types of people in the blue bubbles. These guides provide information on the role that each can play in improving the health of communities along with guidance on what they can do during each action step.
