A Live Well! San Diego event held at the east plaza at the County Administration Center, Tuesday the 22nd, from 10 am to 1 pm, gave San Diegans an opportunity to come in, learn the possibikities for living a healthy life, and say goodbye to a county health worker or a health professional.
Locals who joined the health policy experts found locations to see proof healthy living is real life work. The day's work taught locals how to give weight to the blood pressure learned during a screening, the lessons at yoga and zumba sessions, and a break taken on healthhy cooking.
The more locals learn the more they can improve health in the county region. Board Chairman Greg Cox was on hand. The Live Well in Action fair, as the county named the event, opened the county center to give locals "a great opportunity for the public to learn about Live Well San Diego and how they can get involved." Everyone is welcome," he said.
Talking to health advocates was free to the public. Trying a walk or a bike ride down to the county location on Pacific Highway, or a trip on public transportation, counted for taking a tip. The first 100 people received a calorie counting jump rope.
San Diego COunty, the first official LEt's Move county in the nation, motivates locals to do more than the least they can do to get fit for a healthy life. Hospitals regularly partner with the county to work on locals health. The fair motivated locals to join in onthe work, or at least ask what they can do for their own health. The plan is to work together with the city, and schools and businesses, to grow the numbers who walk the healthy way. "By working together, we can achieve meaningful change and improve the lives of San Diego county residents," Nick Macchione, the head of the County Health and Human Services Agency said.
Meeting together on Pacific Highway was just a first step. Work giving San DIegans a start on walking the healthhy way is a long term deal the county set up for thepublic.
