Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla. —The Florida Department of Health is accepting submissions for the third annual Healthy Weight Community Champion Recognition Program.

It was a beautiful day in DOH-Putnam for our inaugural World Heart Day Fun 5K Walk/Run. There were over 50 participants and 20 plus volunteers on the route through Palatka’s South Historic District. Our youngest participant was 5-6 years old and our oldest was an 85 year old. We even had several dogs participating.
