Hardin County, Ohio – February 13. 2017 – This week, the Healthy Lifestyles Coalition will begin its community nutrition & physical activities survey of Hardin County residents as part of a state-wide initiative to improve nutrition and physical activity opportunities within communities. The Healthy Lifestyles Coalition was granted funding to help identify the gaps to access healthy foods and physical activity opportunities within Hardin County. Healthy Lifestyles Coalition is working closely with the Hospital Council of NW Ohio to conduct the survey. Over the next month, Hardin County residents will be asked to participate in an online survey to provide their feedback about their community.
The anonymous survey asks participants to answer questions about access to healthy foods and their opinion about their community’s physical activity opportunities. Results from this survey, will be complied into a report and reviewed by the Healthy Lifestyles Coalition to then come up with strategies to help better the overall health and well-being of Hardin County residents.
The Healthy Lifestyles Coalition is composed of many public and private agencies that make up the public health system. The partners include:Kenton Hardin Health Department, OhioHealth Hardin Memorial Hospital, County Commissioners, Hardin County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services, Partnership for Violence Free Families, Hardin Family First Council, the Ohio Department of Health, YMCA, OSU Extension, Ohio Northern University, Quest Federal Credit Union, WIC, HHWP Community Action, and International Paper, and supporting community members.
