_Healthy Newport is a grassroots community movement, started in late 2011 on the fundamental belief that together, we can be healthier! Our goals are simple: to promote, educate and motivate.
- To PROMOTE all things health and wellness-related
in our community - whether they be activities, organizations, goods,
services or resources and whether they've been around forever or are
brand new. If you're involved in something health and wellness related,
we want to help you promote it to our community! Hence this website,
our brochures, our Facebook page, our E-newsletter, Community Calendar, directory of Healthy Spots and, perhaps most important, our network of Partners in Health.
- To EDUCATE our community about health and wellness.
What do we need to know to help ourselves and our families live
healthier lives? What is good for us? What isn't? What changes can we
make today to set us up for a healthier life down the road? Check out
our Resources section, where we'll be adding recipes, light reading, useful links and be sure to Like Us on Facebook,
where we post links to useful articles, research and other
health-related resources. Along with our Partner events and classes, we
also plan on introducing some new education-oriented events to help you
navigate the road to healthier choices.
- To MOTIVATE our community to make healthier choices.
Whether it's in relation to eating, activities or other habits, we each
make choices every day. We want to motivate our community to make the
healthiest ones possible. Join in the fun and be a part of our Fit Together! Challenge
or attend any number of community events that will be occurring
throughout the year. Grab a friend, a family member or a co-worker and
join together to be a part of a Healthy Newport!
