Mission of K+K
The mission of Kalusugan and Kalakasan is to help FilAms and others in need find the path to good health and total wellness so they will be healthy, live longer and lead productive lives. We will do this through community education and service, advocacy, research and training (CART). We accomplish our mission in collaboration with families, health professionals, community organizations and government agencies.
Total wellness is a way of life oriented toward optimal health and well-being in which body, mind and spirit are integrated by the individual to live more fully within the human and natural community. The eight aspects of wellness are: spiritual, social, mental, intellectual, physical, financial, environmental and occupational.
Kalusugan and Kalakasan’s vision is to be a pioneer and leader in health and total wellness in the Filipino American (FilAm) community through health promotion and education. Our vision is to see healthy FilAms and other underserved groups living healthy, longer and productive lives that benefit the community they live and work in.
