Curriculum/program overview: The Small Steps to Health and Wealth program motivates participants to improve both their health and their finances. Participants are encouraged to set a health goal and/or wealth goal, then take action to achieve their goals by identifying small progress steps. Participants discuss 20 similarities between health and personal finance issues and learn 10 suggested behavior change strategies that can be applied to either area of life. The impact of health on finances and finances on health is also explored. The program concludes with a discussion of seven key health and wealth success factors: attitude, automation, awareness/knowledge, control, environment, goals, and time.
