Health Ambassadors

Health in All Policies is a way to improve health for individuals and communities. Our Health Ambassadors make decisions through a lens of health – they consider how actions will affect people’s health and choose options that support health and wellbeing. We are starting a Health in All Policies movement by supporting people in Louisville who work to make their communities healthier.

Soil is one the most underrated, and little-understood, wonders on our fragile planet. ar from being lifeless dirt, it’s estimated that in a single gram of soil, there could be as many as 50,000 species of microscopic organisms, or microorganisms. And in one teaspoon of soil, there are more microorganisms than there are people on the Earth. Watch this video from the Royal Society to learn how special soil is.
