Albany- If you are looking for a reason to kick off the New Year with a healthier lifestyle, now is the time to join the SouthWest Health District's 2006 Wellness Campaign. The joint effort invites everyone in the community to make a pledge to live a healthier, longer life.

The Hooked on Health program begins Friday, January 6, at the Moultrie-Spence field. It begins at 9AM and ends at 3PM. More than 400 people are expected to attend. In hopes to learn how to live better lifestyles.

The four major principles for the program are proper nutrition, increased physical activity, stress reduction, and living a smoke free lifestyle. Dr. Jacqueline H. Grant, SouthWest Health District Director says, "We chose these four principles because they are behavioral conditions that can be changed, a person has an opportunity to make a difference in the way they live."

That's why now is the perfect time to combine the four concepts and fight diseases that could eventually result in death.
