Vulnerable in America and World (via), Thrive!, and viaFuture
For decades, Gary "Chris" Christopherson, Founder, has been a strong advocate of causes that support the overall Thrive! and viaFuture and Vulnerable in America and World (via) visions. His strategic, policy, management, performance, and advocacy work spans his service both in government and outside.
His decision to start Thrive! and viaFuture, as well as Vulnerable in America and World (via) and HealthePeople - Building a Healthy and Thriving Future, comes from many years of advocacy inside and outside of government. It comes from a realization that saving on a single issue or parts of a "community" is helpful if done well. But, it is not enough. What is missing and needed is an effort that takes a "whole community" view and has a "whole community" vision of what we must, can and will achieve. Communities can be of any size from towns and cities to States to regions to nations to multinational areas.
His primary work has been with creating and sustaining large, positive and timely change, improving health, educing vulnerability and building a thriving and surviving future for all forever.
“Vulnerable (via)” is a potential local, regional and national strategy to minimize vulnerability and maximize thriving. Its vision is one of thriving communities, and a thriving America and beyond. It works to successfully create and execute an endgame strategy for achieving that vision.
Thrive! is an endeavor and the call to action for building a thriving and surviving future forever for all, including people, key issues, and communities, nations and world. It uses viaFuture to create and sustain a thriving future for a population, and a specific and/or cross-cutting issue. See ThrivingFuture.org for more detail.
viaFuture couples the vision for creating and sustaining change and a thriving future coupled with the necessary enhanced ability (next generation strategy/models/tools) and the necessary strong motivation. See viaFuture.org for more detail.
In this context, "via" has a second meaning, as a core set of strategies and models have been developed from 30+ years of experience at the local and nationals levels. Parts or all of "via" have been used in the White House, Congress inner city health systems, the Department of Defense's Military Health System, the Department of Veterans Affairs' Veterans Health System and the Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services.
