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.
