Healthy Living

What do nutrition, physical activity, sleep and managing stress have in common? They are some of the aspects of our lifestyles that we can control to help create or maintain our health. Kenosha County Aging and Disability Resource Center’s Health and wellness programs offer diverse information on ways to make positive changes and live your best life now.

What kind of Health Education programs do you want?

Your opinion can make a difference! The Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging (WIHA) is asking you to take a 5-minute survey to let us know about your interest and ability to participate in evidence-based programs. Our evidence-based programs are important to avoid injuries and prevent or manage health conditions like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, and more. Thus, we want to make sure these programs are easily available to everyone and need your valuable input to better understand the barriers that keep people from participating. Please help us by taking this short survey.
