Florida health challenges
A large uninsured population
Low rate of high school graduation
A glaring geographical disparity in access to health care amenities
The Florida Department of Health has launched a Healthy Communities, Healthy People (HCHP) program to prevent chronic disease by making “healthy choice the easy choice”. The main aim of HCHP is to reduce the risk of chronic illness among adults and thereby push up the number of healthy adults in the state.
The leading causes of death and disability in Florida are chronic, lifestyle related diseases like cancer, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, arthritis, etc. The HCHP aims at preventing these disorders by promoting a healthier lifestyle and eating habits and a more active lifestyle among the people.
To reduce racial and ethnic health disparities, “Closing the gap” grant program was signed in June, 2008 to promote the setting up of community and neighborhood-based organizations, with the aim of improving overall health among racial and ethnic minorities and to promote disease prevention activities among them.
This program has helped make meaningful improvements to the lives of many Floridians by developing tools and strategies which will help narrow down the disparities among them and bring down the rate of disease and disability, particularly in regard to heart disease, cancer, HIV/ AIDS, immunization, diabetes, oral health care, maternal health and infant mortality.
In addition to these health initiatives, a wellness program called The Body and Soul in Motion has been developed for churches. The churches under this program urge their members to stick to a vegetable and fruit rich diet with an aim to improve their overall health.
Churches that embrace this program empower their members and help them take care of their minds as well as their bodies. The four mainstays of this program are:
A committed pastor
An environment conducive to promoting healthier eating habits
Activities that supports a more active lifestyle by promoting physical fitness
Encouraging activities that bring about a healthier lifestyle
