WHO SHAPED YOUR HEALTH?

We all have someone who has made an impact on how we look at health and wellbeing. A family member. A friend. A coach. A nurse. Or, a teacher. Our views and values are largely shaped by the community that surrounds us, and everyone plays an important role. Who has had the greatest influence on your health?
