Are you interested in making a health change this fall?
If so this challenge is for you!
For six weeks this fall we will focus on increasing your physical activity levels as well as focusing your awareness on one health habit per week. Examples of behaviors we will be encouraging include drinking more water, watching portion size, eating more vegetables and fruits and consuming low fat dairy products. We will share tips, recipes and researched based information through emails and blog posts. We also have a facebook page to encourage participants on their journey.
The on-line email challenge will run from September 17th to October 29th.
There is no charge to participate and any adult with an email account can register to participate.
Participants will sign up for the email challenge and complete a consent form to participate in the challenge. During the challenge, participants will track their daily progress on a 6 week log. We will have an anonymous pre and post on-line survey for you to complete.
What is included: Twice weekly educational messages, tracking log for progress, Facebook account for group interaction, weekly drawings from participants for wellness and fitness prizes.
Why: To improve your overall health and well-being while providing valuable research as to the effectiveness of social media as a means of disseminating educational information.
