Health Policy Summit on Nov. 6
The 7th Annual Health Policy Summit will be held on Friday, November 6. This yearly event is essential for bringing together the people and institutions working to improve the health of our communities. The theme of this year’s Summit is Embracing a Culture of Health and Wellness. Civic leaders, employers, faith leaders and professionals from health, medicine, nursing, and education will learn strategies for creating a culture of health and wellness and integrate ideas from previous Summits.
The vision of Get Up and Go! is to transform St. Clair County into the healthiest county in the U.S. by 2020. We believe that healthy eating and active living are both essential in achieving that aim. In 2014, the Board of Directors of Get Up & Go! took a serious step towards promoting the healthy eating “side of the equation” by voting to award $5,000 in grants to support community gardening.
Thanks to all the participants and volunteers who braved the steamy August heat and made our 5th Annual Biathlon on August 2 a success! We’re happy to report that this was one of the most successful Biathlons in the 4-year history of the event.
Over 40 people attended the "Effective Advocacy for Biking, Walking and Running" event sponsored by Get Up & Go! in late August.
