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.

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

If healthy options are not available, then healthy decisions are not possible. From promoting new trails and paths to encourage active transportation to offering healthier foods and beverages in schools and communities, the availability of healthier choices can change behaviors and help reduce chronic diseases. Vanderburgh County is taking action to:
-Implement a coordinated school-health model with an emphasis on healthy eating in the school  environment.

-Establish walking clubs with before- and afterschool programs to increase physical activity amongst youth.

-Increase the availability of bike racks and bicycle signage to promote active transportation.

-Communicate with the community through the media to promote physical activity and healthy eating.

-Develop Safe Routes to School to ensure that students can safely walk or bike to school.

-Expand successful community- and school-based obesity-prevention efforts.
