We acknowledge that health status, and related health behaviors are determined by influences at multiple levels, such as providing participants’ health education, discuss their primary diagnoses’ for which participants/health education is provided, topics associated with diagnoses’, amount of time spent providing participants/health education, level of understanding of the participants/health education provided, personal virtual (online) or face-to-face time, organizational/institutional, environmental, and policy. Because significant and dynamic interrelationships exist among these different levels of health determinants; therefore, educational and community-based factors are most likely to succeed in improving health and wellness when we address the influences at all levels, and in a variety of environments/settings.
