Building Healthy Communities

Where you live has a huge influence on your health.

It’s hard to choose healthy meals if the only options near you are fast food or prepackaged, processed convenience store fare. It’s more difficult to be physically active if you’re not near parks, sidewalks or other opportunities to exercise.

A key part of making west Georgia a healthier place to live is empowering residents to make healthier choices. Through Get Healthy, Live Well, we’re working to help design and build healthier communities.

Through strategy, planning — and commitment from local leaders — changes in community planning and design can (and do) lead to meaningful changes in a community’s health.
