3-4-50 Scorecard

3 lifestyle behaviors (including lack of physical activity, poor diet, and tobacco use), lead to 4 chronic diseases (including cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and type 2 diabetes) that cause 50% of deaths in Macomb County each year.  This scorecard examines where we are as a county and what the programs and services the department provides to support healthy living.

Why Is This Important?

A decrease in chronic disease and an increase in healthy lifestyle behaviors is essential to a healthy community. Chronic disease and a healthy lifestyle can often be viewed as having an inverse relationship and the rise of healthy lifestyle education and application within a community could result in a decrease of chronic disease (obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer). Many of the indicators we use to evaluate chronic disease and healthy lifestyles have been following an increasingly negative trend.

The Macomb County Health Department and its community partners are working together to target modifiable risk factors for chronic disease by providing efficient, evidence based programming and services. Our 2017 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) has identified chronic disease and healthy lifestyle as a priority for one of the work groups. Over the next 5 years the work group will identify or develop targeted programs and services in the county to provide residents opportunities to improve their lifestyle choices.

Strategy

During our first year, we will focus primarily on increasing physical activity with youth and seniors in our community.

We will address physical activity with youth by working with schools to implement Fuel Up To Play 60 (FUTP60).  FUTP60 is the nation’s largest in-school health and wellness program, created by the National Dairy Council and National Football League in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This free program offers funding opportunities for schools and an online Playbook full of school-tested action strategies to improve healthy eating and physical activity at schools and beyond. FUTP60 empowers students, with the support of adults, to take the lead in making healthy changes and to have a positive impact in their communities. Over 73,000 schools are involved, and 38 million students have been reached through the program nationwide. FUTP60 is currently active in some of Macomb County's schools, and through this partnership, we hope to engage more schools in Macomb County to make a measurable impact on physical activity levels of students. For more information on FUTP60, you can visit https://www.fueluptoplay60.com/

We will address physical activity with seniors by first identifying the needs of those who live, work and play in Macomb County.  Our first plan of action is to reach out to our senior community members and have conversations with them about their needs and wants.  Then we will work with our local senior centers, community centers, faith based organizations, and parks/recreation partners to identify the best ways to increase activity and engage our senior community.  

Lastly, be on the lookout for a centralized resource to share physical activity opportunities, physical activity resources, and local maps and events on ways to promote health and reduce chronic disease risk.
