Get Healthy’s redesigned website, www.gethealthysmc.org, provides a one-stop shop where people can share information, discover creative ways to stay active, and become informed on upcoming events, workshops, and available funding to support local programs.
Starting as a task force to prevent childhood obesity, Get Healthy has grown into a successful collaboration of cities, community leaders, and organizations across the county. Because wellness begins where people live, learn, work, and play, Get Healthy works to develop strategies that can reduce and prevent obesity-related health conditions associated with unhealthy eating and physical inactivity. Get Healthy places a special focus on the areas in the county with the fewest opportunities and options for physical activity and healthy food.
The Get Healthy website is all about what is happening locally, such as bike lanes, organizations with wellness policies, reducing sugary drink consumption, and Safe Routes to School. Get Healthy is also launching its new Facebook Page, www.facebook.com/gethealthysmc. Visit www.gethealthysmc.org and click “join us” to be added to the mailing list.
