Be active Stay healthy

 

The Community Health Education Division works to prevent chronic disease by making the healthy choice the easy choice. Chronic diseases - such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes - are the leading causes of death and disability in Florida. Although these diseases are among the most costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable.
