Healthy Eating and Physical Activity
Chronic diseases, like cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and asthma, are the leading cause of disability and death in Mason County. These diseases can often be prevented by eating healthier, being more active, and quitting smoking. The Healthy Eating and Physical Activity program focuses on making the environments where we live, learn, work, and play healthier so it’s easier for people to make healthy choices.
We provide information and technical assistance to community groups, businesses, schools, and health care providers in developing policies and practices to support healthier eating, physical activity, and tobacco-free lifestyles.
