BOWLING GREEN — Wood County Health Department is asking for feedback on a recent six-week campaign promoting the importance of physical activity.
The health department is asking people to complete a quick survey to help evaluate the effectiveness of messages used during the campaign. The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G5MS8X2
Over six weeks, social media posts and promotions encouraged people to get more exercise using existing resources such as parks, bike trails and community events. Parks and trails provide great places to run or walk at no cost, in a variety of different surroundings. Events like 5Ks are good ways to work toward an exercise or goal or fitness level. The health department now lists information about these resources at WoodCountyHealth.org/activity
Obesity is an important public health issue and will continue to be a focal point of the health department’s mission to improve the health of people in Wood County. Earlier this month, the health department and Wood County Community Health Center hosted an event to share information about factors that influence childhood obesity, as part of National Health Center Week.
If you are interested in participating in a new group being organized to promote physical activity and nutrition in Wood County, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
