What We're About

Prevention is the most cost-effective approach to reducing chronic disease morbidity and mortality. The Live Healthy Georgia Initiative serves as the umbrella for an outreach initiative that aims to raise awareness about the risk factors associated with chronic diseases and to provide Georgians with information about ways to live healthier, and reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases. Live Healthy Georgia is not only focused on individual behavior change but change that is made to the policies, systems and environments that impact our healthy choices. The overarching messages of the campaign are:

Get Checked: Receive appropriate health screenings

Eat Healthy: Follow a low-fat diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains

Be Active: Increase and maintain physical activity

Be Smoke Free: Eliminate tobacco use

Be Positive: Achieve and maintain a state of mental wellness





Live Healthy Georgia is an initiative sponsored by the Georgia Department of Public Health
