We are global health storytellers, strategists, creatives, and advocates.
We use strategic communications and advocacy to motivate and encourage action that drives global change
At The Well Co. we aim to communicate, educate and inspire sustainability, transparency, and long-lasting change in our global health system. We believe in the power effective communications strategies can have in improving global health, and are driven to utilize communication tools and strategies as a means for unifying global citizens of the world.
We believe that through compelling storytelling and community focused communications we can positively impact social justice in our food system and health equity globally.
Simply put, we get people to care, because when people care they are motivated to change, and that is when sustainable impact really happens.
why the well co.
The Well Co. was founded by Megan Faletra (MS, MPH, RDN) when she witnessed the increasing need that social enterprises and non-profits had for strategic communications to ensure that their findings and social impact could reach intended users for maximum impact.
While many organizations have invested heavily in research, fundraising, and analysis, most are missing the key element to ensuring scalable, sustainable, long-term impact — strategic communications.
So The Well Co. was founded to aid social impact organizations in inspiring and engaging two way dialogues with global audiences while also providing the qualified support needed to help grow and develop long-term global health and sustainability programs.
At The Well Co. our clients are busy conducting research, implementing programs, developing products, and working to make the lives of those they serve better. We bring that work to life by translating complex global health, nutrition, and sustainability data into compelling communications and advocacy that encourage global action.
With more organizations looking to make a positive social impact, the need for strategic global health communications and storytelling has never been more necessary. This is where The Well Co. works with our clients to provide the professional global health, sustainability, and nutrition skills required to support the sustainable goals of the clients we serve. From developing impact reports, to long-term social media and visual communications strategies we help our clients engage global citizens around the world to improve interest, funding, and overall impact.
