“Real Life Connection” Q & A with Executive Director of HealthCode, Steve Amos
n his exclusive interview with Kidney Contenders, Steve Amos shares both his professional and personal views & expresses on the benefits of communicating health outreach. Q: How does HealthCode translate preventative care for the average, private citizen, nationally and internationally? A: Today’s sedentary life styles and poor diets are literally killing us. HealthCode’s mission is to empower people to live healthier, happier lives free from preventable diseases. HealthCode’s programs encourage people to be physically active, eat smart and establish positive communities of support. Q: Is outreach accessible for every person, nationally and internationally? A: HealthCode’s programs are accessible globally, plus no fees are required. Just connect to the Internet for program access and get active in the real world. We’ve seen adults do care about their health, their family and friends, but sometimes lack tools and support. Sadly, in our society we often see a huge disconnect between mind and body and comprehending the importance of loving one’s self worth.
Q: Healthcode’s website powers additional affiliations under its umbrella. What are some of these other affiliations? A: Participants from Million Mile Month (MMM) requested quarterly events to encourage physical activity, not just for themselves but for their communities. Social outreach, person-to-person communicating their interest of the well-being of their colleagues, friends, neighbours, etc. This July MMM has “triathlon in a month (https://millionmilemonth. org/events)” where participants can create their own mileage for the month of July. Registration is open to local, regional and global participants. The point is to encourage people to set their own goals with their physical activities. HealthCode provides quarterly activity events to encourage everyone to get up and move, including families, colleagues at work and throughout communities. It has been wonderful to see companies participate around the globe in support of their employees’ health and wellness. Q: Who are the people HealthCode contends for? A: All those who make up our communities – individuals, families, folks at work, organisations, companies – everyone! Because everyone should experience the benefits of a healthier, happier life.
