would like to congratulate the Northeast Texas Public Health District for
receiving the Model Practice Award from the National Association of City and
County Health Officials (NACCHO) for its Center for Healthy Living!
On August 8,
2016, local county, city and health officials gathered at the Center for
Healthy Living, at 2815 Frankston Highway, where NET Health CEO George Roberts
presented his staff with the national honor.
The group heard
from Joy Johnson about what programs they offer at the center, which include diabetes,
cooking and Zumba classes, as well as free mammograms and other health screenings.
Campbell talked about how the Center for Healthy Living has helped her since
she was diagnosed with diabetes and her doctor told her she was dying. She said
the free program has made a difference in her life, helping her change her
eating and exercise habits.
I go, I’m singing the praises for this place,” she said.
to NET Health for the great work you are doing in Smith County!
