Breathing cleaner air, making school lunches more nutritious, improving access to healthy food in poorer communities — all these important topics are part of the agenda for the Health Action Summit Wednesday and Thursday, August 24-25, at the Sheraton in downtown Birmingham.
This is the place for nonprofit organizations and community advocates to learn more about how to help our community make the healthy choice the easy choice. In addition to learning from national speakers on public policy, advocacy and more, participants can take part in healthy activities on Thursday. Activities range from yoga in Railroad Park to trail-walking and smoke-free day in Five Points South.
The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham is proud to be a partner in the Jefferson County Health Action Partnership, host of the Health Action Summit and leader in Communities Putting Prevention to Work, a program funded a $13 million federal grant. This is truly a great way to leverage local and national dollars to make our whole community better and reach an important Result: People can lead healthy lives.
