Introduction The idea for Critical Mass Health Conductor began during a 2003 retreat of Bay Area African American Health Initiative's Council of Elders. It was viewed as a strategy to promote health and wellness in our community. Throughout the retreat, Harriet Tubman's name emerged again and again. To honor her in this process, Harriet Tubman has been chosen as the guiding ancestor of the Critical Mass Health Conductors, and leads this effort as the Honorary Health Conductor #1. ~~~~ The Bay Area African American health Initiative (BAAAHI) is enrolling one percent of the total population of African Americans in the Bay Area as Critical Mass health Conductors. Each enrollee must complete a free monthly training. ~~~~ An “active conductor” -- makes a personal and public commitment to promote health and wellness in their own lives, among family members and friends and within their communities.
