The Live Healthy Southern Lorain County coalition is a community group that is conducted through the Creating Healthy Communities Program at Lorain County Public Health.
PURPOSE: As a part of the Creating Healthy Communities Program, Live Healthy Southern Lorain County will connect people and resources to improve the Southern Lorain community by assessing and promoting opportunities for increased physical activity, improved nutrition, and reduced tobacco use and exposure… creating a community where the healthy choice is the easy choice!
Live Healthy Southern Lorain, partnering worksites, community organizations, and schools use an assessment called the CHANGE tool to define areas for improvement and consider appropriate allocation of available resources.
The Creating Healthy Communities program is funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Ohio Department of Health (ODH).

When the temperature gets too high it could make you and your loved ones sick. You can become ill if your body can’t keep itself at a cool enough temperature. First, remember to NEVER leave children or pets in vehicles when it’s hot. Even if the windows are cracked open, vehicle temperatures can rise almost 20 degrees within the first 10 minutes.
Get fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables from City Fresh, a local service that lets you “subscribe” to receive fruits and vegetables every week. Lorain County Public Health and El Centro de Servicios Sociales in Lorain have partnered with City Fresh to make it easier for residents to get fresh fruits and vegetables at an affordable price, and close to home.
