Ensuring a Safe, Healthy Home for Your Family

National Public Health Week starts today! Monday's theme is Ensuring a Safe, Healthy Home for Your Family. Public health is in every corner of our homes. It's in the safe food in the fridge, the carbon monoxide and smoke detectors affixed to the ceiling, and the child-proof latches that keep dangerous chemicals out of little hands. Home is also where we learn healthy behaviors, such as eating right and exercising. Good prevention starts at home - link here to learn how you can make your home a safer, healthier place! http://www.nphw.org/tools-and-tips/themes/ensuring-a-safe-healthy-home-for-your-family


Did you know that diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes are responsible for millions of premature deaths each year? Many of these deaths could have been prevented through small changes. During National Public Health Week, April 1st through 7th, the North Georgia Health District will share information on how supporting public health and prevention can result in healthier lives for us all. Join us each day April 1st through 7th on our website at www.nghd.org, or find us on Facebook, to learn how you can take preventive measures — in ways big and small — in your families, neighborhoods, workplaces and schools — to live longer and healthier lives. A healthier north georgia begins today!
