CONNECT TO PLACES THAT MAKE HEALTHY LIVING EASIER
The places you live, work, learn, worship and play can affect your health. So, the more places that support you to live a healthier life, the better. That’s where the Healthy HotSpot initiative comes in. Led by the Cook County Department of Public Health in collaboration with many partners, Healthy HotSpot aims to multiply the number of places that make healthy living easier in or near your community. Discover Healthy HotSpots near you.
HOW PLACES IN YOUR LIFE CAN AFFECT YOUR HEALTH
The places we live, work, learn, worship, or play matter to our health and can have an impact on how long and how well we live. Healthy HotSpots are places in suburban Cook County that have implemented one or more proven strategies to encourage positive behaviors, or protect the public’s well-being.
Healthy HotSpot Categories
Healthy HotSpots that have been identified support healthy eating, active living, tobacco-free living, or a prepared Cook County. Click below to learn more about Healthy HotSpot categories, the partners helping to make places Healthy HotSpots, and what you can do to stay healthy.
Healthy HotSpot partners are leading a movement to make all of suburban Cook County a better place to live, work, learn, worship, and play. These changes will also support our communities in tackling major health concerns like chronic diseases including heart disease, obesity, and diabetes and other issues such as emergency preparedness.
