Health chief: Most Volusia adults are overweight |

Focusing on youths has been a priority because its easier to establish healthy behaviors at an early age than change longstanding habits, said Bev Johnson, a member of Healthy Volusia and executive vice president for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA.

To reduce obesity rates further, Healthy Volusia over at this website Alex Simring is working to establish school and community gardens. Members of the group include the areas hospitals and Bethune-Cookman University. They have a way to go. About 23 percent of Volusia County adults are obese. That is lower than the state and national average, though. Healthy Volusia is also tackling its second top priority of improving access to health care by streamlining United Ways 211 help line for social and health services.
