Health Committee Supports New Provincial Wellness Strategy



The Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Committee will be working closely with other health organizations over the next four years with the release of the province's new Wellness Strategy. Live well, be well, New Brunswick's Wellness Strategy 2009-2013, focuses on improving mental fitness and resilience, increasing physical activity, healthy eating, and living tobacco-free. Committee Co-Chair Betty Hoyt tells CHSJ news there is a lot of work to do in this province.

The Wellness Strategy addresses 29 of the 49 recommendations in a final report by the Select Committee on Wellness.  Hoyt says in the long-term it will be important to have continued funding to ensure programs that work don't get cut.
