Welcome to Completion

 

 

Completion is a nonprofit organization that emerged out of a desire to create a link between scientific research and everyday lived experiences. Using the seven dimensions of wellness as a springboard Completion blends Arts, Creativity & Health to improve human health and well-being by making social scientific research more accessible, understandable, and actionable within the local community.

For many, SEVEN is the number of completeness and perfection.  By focusing on these areas of health COMPLETION strives to create an environment where underrepresented communities of people gather to adoption, reinforce, and educate each other about health of the whole being. Through targeted community based participatory engagement opportunities COMPLETION invites you to come on home and grow into your best self.

Purpose Statement

The United States spends more on medical care than other countries; yet, experiences worse health outcomes than most developed countries. Social determinants of health (personal, social, economic and environmental factors and their interpersonal relationships) directly impact a person’s ability to achieve and maintain optimal health.  Underrepresented people groups often experience determinants contrary to those of mainstream society.  In other words, they are more likely to experience health disparities and health inequalities.

 

Mission Statement

Using a determinants of health framework COMPLETION leads an effort to improve the health and wellness of underrepresented people groups.  Through investment in innovative programs, partnerships with community agencies, creativity and outreach the organization advocates for COMPLETE health.

Vision Statement

Underrepresented people groups enjoying optimal COMPLETE health and wellness in a global society.

Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities….Our health is also determined in part by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships.
