Check out this new YouTube video, which urges teens to make daily healthy choices and asks, "What motivates you to stay healthy?"
The Health Element project received technical assistance from the Greenbelt Alliance (through an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Building Block for Sustainable Protection Grant) to provide an educational video for local youth. Entitled "Your Community, Your Health, the video uses local teens and settings to encourage local youth to make healthy choices and get involved in the County's Health Element process. Prepared collaboratively by the Greenbelt Alliance, the County's Planning Office and Public Health Department, the video is being actively distributed to area youth centers, schools, and similar venues.
