Healthy eating and physical activity are two key behaviors that help people of all ages achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and reduce their risk of chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, and some forms of cancer.

GVPH is committed to ensuring that all residents have access to healthy, affordable foods and safe, convenient opportunities for physical activity. The places where people spend time influence the options that are available to them and the choices they make. Therefore, we engage employers in worksite wellness, audit environments supporting healthy eating in local stores, and focus on healthy food and physical activity for our youngest residents through our WOW Coalition, which partners with the public schools and early childhood education and care centers.
