"This handbook is a tool for everyone working to create heart-healthy and strokefree communities across America. Health advocates are recognizing that creating and sustaining healthy communities requires fundamental social change that goes far beyond the individual patient education approach of many traditional public health programs. However, changing the social environment has proved even more challenging than trying to modify individual lifestyle choices. The first step to improving the social environment is to accurately identify its health-promoting and health-damaging characteristics." - p. 2
