 Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL)

About Us 
Healthy eating and active living are vital to improving our health as well as preventing and controlling chronic diseases.  A healthful eating plan can decrease risk of diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension and certain cancers, as well as prevent individuals from being overweight or obese. Regular physical activity also reduces the risk for many diseases, helps control weight, and strengthens muscles, bones and joints. A combination of healthy eating and active living can help people achieve their optimal lifespan with the best possible quality of health in every stage of life. The goal of the program is to provide resources for preventing and reducing chronic disease through healthy eating and active living.
