Go Healthy West Piedmont is a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) grant initiative of the West Piedmont Health District to prevent obesity, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. As residents of our communities consume more fresh, nutritious foods, engage in increased physical activity, and participate in lifestyle change programs, the expected outcome is reduced rates of obesity and diabetes. Through medication adherence and increased use of self-monitoring techniques, we also look forward to seeing our communities demonstrate improved blood pressure control leading to reduced death and disability rates from heart disease and stroke.
