Florida Department of Health Encourages Floridians to Get Ready for Hurricane Season

Full Story

This year’s hurricane season begins June 1, and the Florida Department of Health encourages you to make preparations that can help ensure your safety should severe weather occur.

The Florida Department of Health in Hernando County is encouraging everyone to include health in their holiday activities this year by joining the 2017 Eat Smart, Move More: Maintain, Don’t Gain! Holiday Challenge. Many Americans gain between one and five pounds each holiday season. While it might not sound like much, most people never manage to lose those extra pounds. The Maintain, Don’t Gain! Holiday Challenge is a free seven-week, email-based campaign to help participants maintain their weight through the holiday season. Healthiest Weight Florida, in partnership with North Carolina State University, has been promoting and participating in the Maintain Don’t Gain Holiday Challenge for the past three years. Last year's Holiday Challenge was the biggest and best yet with over 13,500 participants from across the country. The challenge runs through December 31. Join below for tips, tricks and ideas to help maintain your weight throughout the holiday season. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
