LiveHealthyLorainCounty.com is an interactive partnership between Lorain County Public Health and LorainCounty.com. This site is designed to encourage Lorain County residents to move more, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables where we live, work and play.
The site provides local health announcements, tips, and ideas on how to add more health and happiness to your life and to your loved ones' lives, too.
The site is also home to Lorain County Walks, a lifestyle fitness program designed to help you be active and healthy. Users can enter the number of steps they walk each day, view a chart of their steps, compare their steps with the community average, join teams, and build a personal profile.
This September across Lorain County, residents can get their blood drawn at a low cost and learn their cholesterol, blood glucose, complete blood count, and other health indicators. Public health nurses from Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) will answer questions and provide information during blood draw sessions at community locations throughout Lorain County. All Lorain County adults ages 55 and older are invited.
Lorain County worksites can sign up now to compete this September in the second annual Step it Up Challenge. The Lorain City Port Authority won first place in the 2017 Step it Up Challenge by averaging over 12,000 steps (about 6 miles) per employee per day. An introductory webinar will take place on Aug. 9, 2018 at 8:30 AM to learn more about the Step it Up Challenge.
