Lake County Healthy Lifestyle Initiative
A Family Wellness System
Making the healthy choice, the easy choice!
As a primary health agency in Lake County, we understand it is our responsibility to provide the public with health and wellness interventions through education, awareness, and practice.
Health Education – Any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health by increasing knowledge or influencing their attitudes. SOURCE
Awareness – Being conscious of health behaviors that lead to risk factors for lifestyle related diseases as well as health behaviors that decrease risk factors for disease.
Practice – Making healthy choices that enhance the overall health of the individual which leads to a high quality life.
