Presentation encourages healtheir lifestyles

ELIZABETHTOWN - The Essex County Public Health Department, with the assistance of a grant from the New York State Department of Health, will sponsor a presentation by healthy activity expert Mark Fenton, entitled "Building a Healthier Essex County," Thursday, March 4, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Essex County Board of Supervisors' Chambers.

Most ideal healthy communities are those in which people can walk or bike to their destinations, physical activities are safe, accessible, inviting, and commonplace, and healthy food is readily available. These topics will be addressed in this training, as well as other ways to create more livable, sustainable and successful villages and towns.

The program is free of charge with lunch included. For more information, including how to register, contact Jessica Darney Buehler prior to March 1 via e-mail at jdbuehler@co.essex.ny.us or by calling 873-3518.
