HEAL Schuyler (Preventing Obesity)

HEAL logo
Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL) in Schuyler is made up of agencies, businesses, and concerned community members within Schuyler County. We work together to help reduce the rate of obesity among people within our county.

Schuyler County is above the state average for the rate of overweight adults and children. Health data from the 2012 “County Health Rankings & Roadmaps” shows that 28% of adult residents in Schuyler County are overweight. This shows a 2% yearly increase in adult obesity statistics since 2010. These factors rank Schuyler County as 34 out of 62 in NY for Health Issues. Obesity is directly connected to a variety of short and long term health problems. Obesity increases healthcare and other costs leading to a shorter life span.
