Diane presented an interesting slide program about the County’s Health Improvement Projects, starting with assessment, formulating goals and then beginning programs to inform and educate the public.

Much was covered about the 67.9%  overweight/obesity rate and the 32% of people who smoke daily.

It is especially important to curb smoking during pregnancy.

A program entitled “Healthy Highway ” is  currently involved  with local schools to enable healthier food choices.

The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets every Friday at 7 a.m. at Mimi’s in Fulton.
