Is Your County, City or Town a Healthy Community Champion?

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health is proud to recognize 33 communities as 2019 Healthy Community Champions. The local governments of Florida’s counties, cities and towns play an important role in improving the health of communities. In Florida, local governments have carried out a variety of policies that can empower people to increase their physical activity, improve nutrition and overall health. When policies that can improve public health are put into action, the Health in All Policies (HiAP) approach to comprehensive planning is achieved. HiAP helps local governments promote and create environments where the healthy choice can be the easier choice for families and individuals.

The Florida Department of Health (Department) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to closely monitor the current outbreak of 2019 novel coronavirus and is actively working to ensure that the most up-to-date CDC guidance is quickly and accurately disseminated to local partners.
