Making Monday the Day All Health Breaks Loose!
We’re a public health initiative associated with Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and Syracuse Universities that promotes sustainable behavior change by dedicating every Monday to health.
Individuals and organizations can apply one or more of our campaigns to address different health behaviors, including nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and tobacco cessation.
Highlights from Our Partners
We work with leading health institutions to develop evidence-based health programs and promotions that can be implemented in a range of settings including hospitals, schools, workplaces, and communities.
Teams from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have lent their expertise to engage more countries and international NGOs in doing Meatless Monday, as a way to reduce meat consumption around the world.
