March is National Nutrition Month

This year’s theme is “Go Further with Food,” a reminder to eat healthfully for ongoing energy and plan meals and snacks in advance to help reduce food loss and waste.

February is American Heart Month.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions.

Take Action to Prevent the Flu

It takes two weeks after vaccination for your body to build protection against flu viruses. Since it is not possible to know exactly when the flu season will start each year, it is best to get your flu vaccine before flu viruses start to spread in your community. CDC recommends people get vaccinated by the end of October, if possible.
