Joint Effort Tackles Quincy Area Obesity Rate
A combined effort involving the Salvation Army Kroc Center and Quincy Family YMCA takes aim at Adams County’s obesity ranking.
Adams County Taking Initiative on Obesity Now will be a program to encourage… educate and motivate county residents to live a healthier life style. Participants in the program will receive free access to either facility for a ten week period contingent on meeting program requirements. A health and wellness fair to kick off the program is August 25th. Studies indicate 37 percent of Adams County residents are considered obese. The state average in Illinois is just over 29 percent.
