"There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that the​ ​social context of our schools,​ ​workplaces and neighborhoods affects our health and wellbeing in many ways. However, from​ ​a researcher's perspective, getting entire communities on​ ​board with structured interventions​ ​can be difficult, if not impossible. We've been intrigued by seeing how the Ben's Bells​ ​message and programming has been widely adopted by local schools, businesses and the​ ​Tucson community at large. By working in partnership with Ben's Bells, we are hoping to​ ​better understand how a grassroots approach like theirs can help students, and entire​ ​communities, to thrive."
