"HEALTH DEPARTMENT OFFERS HEALTHY RESOLUTIONS CHECKLIST"

Are you planning your New Year's resolutions for 2013?" The Health Department staff offers the following Health Resolutions Checklist for your consideration:

* Quit Smoking
* Get Your Annual Mammogram
* Keep Your Annual Pap Test
* Make sure all in the family are up-to-date on needed immunizations
* Eat Healthy
* Get Exercise
* Keep/Make Well Baby/Child Exams
* Get an Annual Fasting Blood Draw

If you are considering one of these resolutions, the Henry and Stark County Health Departments may be able to help you with smoking cessation products, women exams, and child immunizations. These services are available at the Health Department, many for free or for a nominal fee. The Health Department reminds area residents that we have grant funds, services and programs to help you keep your 2013 New Year's Resolutions.

The New Year can be a great opportunity to start fresh. And New Year's resolutions can be a powerful tool to give your health a big boost - and improve your whole life. Far too often, though, resolutions don't last past February or March. Instead of motivating you for success, resolutions are often unrealistic - and can make you feel like you've failed. Let the Health Department help you meet your goals and resolutions for the upcoming year.

For more information call the Health Department at (309) 852-5272 (Main Office), (309) 792-4011 (Colona Office) or (309) 852-3115 (Stark County) or visit our website at www.henrystarkhealth.com or find us on Facebook at Henry and Stark County Health Departments. And, have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
