The Florida Department of
Health is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Healthy
Weight Community Champion Recognition Program. Florida counties and
municipal governments that want to showcase their efforts to create healthy
communities are encouraged to apply!
Last year, 80 cities, towns
and counties were recognized by the Florida Department of Health for their
efforts to increase physical activity and improve nutrition as part of the
Healthiest Weight Florida Initiative. This year, their goal is to increase this
number to 100 recognized jurisdictions. Please visit www.healthiestweightflorida.com/resources to apply and download the HealthyWeight Community Champion Guidance and Resources document for more information.
