About Us

YOU MAY ONLY EDIT WHAT IS SEEN BETWEEN THE RED LINES. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY DELETE ONE OF THE RED LINES (OR SOMETHING OUTSIDE OF THEM), PLEASE CANCEL YOUR CHANGES AND TRY AGAIN.

------------------------------

The Douglas County Health Department, through the Live Well Omaha community partnership, is working to implement community-wide and targeted communication strategies to promote physical activity and healthy eating messages and to invite organizational commitment to policy change. The project is also focusing on enhancing signage for community trails, parks, and green spaces; adding opportunities for alternate modes of transportation; expanding Safe Routes to School to include connections to public spaces such as libraries; and adding physical activity standards and limiting sweetened beverages in after-school programs. In addition, the project is also working to increase the number of healthy food options in the community by introducing Healthy Stores—a program employing product placement and pricing strategies along with community education—and a Farm to School program centered around school gardens.
