Gov. Nathan Deal will deliver remarks at the launch of Cobb2020 Partnership’s Health Improvement initiative, The Weight is Over ... A Healthier Cobb Starts NOW!, on Oct. 11 at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre.
The event’s ultimate goal is to raise awareness of the growing health problems and barriers to health services in Cobb County, and to invite community leaders to join the partnership for building a healthier community. These leaders will be asked to go back to their communities and businesses and propose wellness policy changes that support a healthier Cobb County. Resources for health improvement, among others, include physically active community events, office health checkups and smoke-free policies.
