Citizenship-the status of being a citizen-the quality of an individual's response to membership in a community
Health-the overall condition of someone's body or mind-the condition or state of something
Wellness-the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal <lifestyles that promote wellness>SourceThe word "citizenship" never seemed to be a good fit with what we are trying to accomplish in our community in regards to technology use.
