STATE OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS PLEDGE

On April 21, 2016, the Florida Recreation and Park Association hosted its Annual Agency Summit, with over 100 Florida park and recreation professionals representing over 60 local parks and recreation agencies. The Summit focused on the importance of health in a community and how park and recreation departments are closely related to it. “One should not have to look far to see that there are solutions to this epidemic.  Parks and Recreation are one of those solutions,” FRPA President and Director of Miami-Dade Parks, Jack Kardys stated.  “Second only to the public school system, we care for more children for longer periods of time than any other organization. We are a logical partner in the fight to make Florida a healthier State if not the healthiest State in the country.” In attendance were Florida’s Interim Surgeon General, Dr. Celeste Phillips and the Director of the Division of Food, Nutrition and Wellness at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Sciences, Lakeisha Hood. Phillips and Hood were presented with a resolution and copies of the signed pledges from 70 agencies around the state. These 70 agencies serve over 13 million people. The FRPA State of Health and Wellness Pledge focuses on the built environment, physical activity and nutrition.
