Last year over 2,500 Harford County residents came out to learn more about how to stay healthy in Harford! Healthy Harford Day is a relaxing family friendly event where people can come  to learn about ways to get and stay healthy in Harford County. Chronic disease (such as heart disease, stroke, COPD, and diabetes) is the leading cause of death and disability in Harford County, yet healthy lifestyles can have a huge impact on both the quality and the length of life. According to the World Health Organization, at least 80% of heart disease, stroke and type II diabetes, and 40% of some cancers are preventable through proper nutrition, daily physical exercise, and smoking cessation. In addition, mental health issues and substance abuse issues are wreaking  havoc on our community, yet there is help.

Healthy Harford day brings resources from all over the county to one location to help make healthy choices easier. Take control of your health – Live Well, Be Well. Click here for photos of the 2015 event.
