Read More About It@ The Brickell Library: Healthy Living

In 1948 the World Health Organization declared that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease”. Their definition remains unchanged to this day. In order to achieve a positive state of health in our Hampton Roads community we must be willing to face a variety of local health challenges including, the rate of diabetes, infant mortality, and obesity. How can we meet these challenges as individuals? By adopting a healthy lifestyle.

You may already be living a healthy lifestyle, reducing stress, quitting smoking, eating vegetables and squeezing in exercise into your busy day.
