CIGNA Mobile Learning Lab Tour Encourages Individuals and Communities to Look at Healthy Differently

PHILADELPHIA Feb. 22, 2011 CIGNA Mobile Learning Lab

There are many factors that can impact health.  From our stress level, to the type of food we eat and where we live, how healthy we are and what resources we have to stay healthy can all make a difference. Sources of good health include a broad range of social, cultural, and environmental factors, such as education quality, access to healthy food, neighborhood safety, economic and employment opportunity.

The Lab enables guests to learn the "unhealthy truths" facing our nation. According to projections, 86 percent of American adults will be overweight or obese by 2030(1). The number of U.S. children and adolescents who are overweight has more than tripled over the past 30 years(2). To help illustrate these facts, adults may experience an added 20 pounds of weight by trying on a weight jacket or lean how many calories are really in that bag of chips.

The CIGNA Mobile Learning Lab helps visitors examine all of the ways that their health is affected by their communities, relationships and environments – the social, economic and cultural influences in the places where they live, work and play. It then challenges them to take action to create a sustainable change to improve their own health and the health of their communities.
