Tuesdays to Thrive Go Back

What Is It?

Tuesdays to Thrive was identified by the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Action Team as a program that, when combined with other actions in our community, has a reasonable chance of making a difference in physical activity levels as well as weight status in our community. Tuesdays to Thrive is a monthly health and wellness series that features timely health topics through a whole-body approach. This strategy, though not evidence-based, has been implemented in Jackson County since 2014 with great success and participation.

The audience for this strategy is the community at large. This strategy aims to make a difference at the individual level-- increasing knowledge and influence on individual attitudes and beliefs towards health. Implementation will take place community-wide in Jackson County.
