Invest in a healthier life during National Public Health Week

Submitted by the North Georgia Health District

— Did you know that diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes are responsible for millions of premature deaths each year? Many of these deaths could have been prevented through small changes.

During National Public Health Week, April 1-7, the North Georgia Health District will share information on how supporting public health and prevention can result in healthier lives for us all. Visit www.nghd.org or find us on Facebook each day during the week to learn how you can take preventive measures — in ways big and small — in your families, neighborhoods, workplaces and schools to live longer and healthier lives.
