Healthy Communities, Healthy People Message Frame

Eating better, moving more and living tobacco-free lets Oregonians live healthier lives and do the things they love.

But today in Oregon, nutritious food, places to play and exercise, and smokefree air are out of reach for too many people.

As a result, chronic diseases like asthma, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and cancer are on the rise, especially among underserved populations.

A growing movement is out to change this.  Across the state, Oregonians are re-shaping the places we live, learn, work, and play to put healthy options within reach for everyone.

They're building sidewalks, creating smoke-free spaces, bringing fresh produce to the corner store. They're getting junk food out of schools, creating workplace wellness programs, keeping tobacco away from kids.  They're creating communities where we all have access to healthy options.

Below you will find a list of tools to assist in getting out the message about the movement!
