Writing for TFAH’s Prevention and Public Health Stories in the States, Daniel Zoughbie, MCI’s founder, wrote, “Our model brings together groups of two or more in a ‘microclinic.’ A microclinic is not a building but rather a real-life social group formed by the participant’s family, friends, colleagues, and/or peers. Each group first meets in a central location, where they receive education and engage in collective activities to promote healthy lifestyles. Then they take what they have learned back to their homes, businesses, and social networks.” - See more at: http://altarum.org/health-policy-blog/how-your-social-network-can-foster-a-culture-of-health#sthash.t0OF0g1W.dpuf
