|National Health Education Week|
Since 1995, National Health Education Week has been celebrated during the third week of October, which focuses attention to major public health issues. This week aims to improve the health and future of America’s youth through the theme, “Adolescent Health: Planting Seeds for a Healthier Generation.”
Three Rivers District Health Department will be celebrating this week by promoting awareness of this year’s adolescent health issues. There are several ways to get involved: Second Sunday, a day promoted to physical activity, the Arthritis Exercise Program which is designed to teach exercises to those that suffer from arthritis, Walk this Way, a program that encourages walking in limited spaces, and Diabetes Support Groups that emphasizes healthy lifestyle behaviors. Don’t forget, you’re now able to get your FREE FLU SHOT in our clinics as well!
