Adair Countians get moving as state focuses on health

"Get Moving Kentucky!" is meant to be a fun and flexible program designed to increase physical activity levels. The second round of training sessions began recently at the Adair County Extension Office. Several teams signed up from businesses and organizations. Individuals are also taking part.
The Health Activity Tracker allows participants to track health activities and progress in meeting goals members have set for themselves. It's a program encouraged by the governor and offered through the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service Health Education through Extension Leadership (HEEL) program.

What is tracked?

* Physical Activity Miles (PAMs) 1 PAM equals 15 minutes of continuous physical activity.
* Wellness activities healthy eating, self care, safety, etc.

Your local county extension office offers a variety of educational programs in your community. By registering on the Get Moving Kentucky! Health Activity Tracker, you may also receive information about these health education programs.
