Covid Champions MECC Training

Covid Champions MECC Training

Making Every Contact Count is an approach to behaviour change 

it enables the opportunist delivery of consistent and concise healthy lifestyle information, and enables individuals to engage in conversations about their health at scale across organisations and populations. 

The current COVID-19 situation is an ideal time to have those conversations, engaging with people and informing them of the facts around the vaccine, and the positives of receiving their vaccination for both themselves and those around them
