Long Beach Getting Healthy

New, 9 comments

Long Beach is the latest local municipality to connect the dots between the built environment and the health of residents, reports the Long Beach Press-Telegram. The city council was set to introduce the Move Long Beach program yesterday; it's modeled on Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign and "was written to promote exercise and wholesome food choices, especially for children, by integrating the city's health-related physical activities into the mobility element of the general plan, create online health information resources and encourage the hosting of health-awareness events." LA County recently approved a Healthy Design Ordinance to achieve similar goals. [LBPT, image via]
