It Starts Here: Multnomah County's Healthy Living Initiative
A recent report on the healthiest counties in Oregon shows Multnomah county ranking in the middle. Not all of us are fit and mindful of our sugar intake. The Multnomah County Health Department recently launched the “It Starts Here” Campaign for a healthy, active Multnomah County. “We are promoting healthy eating and active living as a means to combat obesity and its many associated health consequences. You can learn more about our campaign at our website multco-itstartshere.org.”
How does this image make you feel? 16 packets of sugar? WOW, is that how much is in a bottle of soda? The County is working on an outdoor advertising campaign to raise community awareness about the health burden of obesity and the effects of hidden sugar, particularly in sugary drinks like soda, sports drinks, and sugar-sweetened juices.
