Wellness Programs

Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County

At the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County (DOH-Santa Rosa), we collaborate with a variety of agencies and organizations to offer physical activity and nutrition promotion to people in the community. Following are several examples of recent program partnerships benefiting those who live in Santa Rosa.

Healthy Lifestyles Toolkit 

Our Healthy Lifestyles Toolkit was developed to provide the parents and children of our community with simple tools to help them understand weight-related health issues and offer suggestions to bring them into a healthier, more active lifestyle. Please visit our Healthy Lifestyles Toolkit page for more information.

Community Health Outreach Events
