Date: January 3, 2014



Today's (Friday, Jan. 3) event to mark the kickoff of the 31 Days to a Healthier You social media campaign has been canceled because of the snowstorm. At this time, there is no make-up date.

The social media campaign will continue to help Delawareans improve their health by using small steps that can add up to big changes. Each day during January, DHSS and its Division of Public Health will use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, flickr, Instagram or YouTube, to offer fitness/activity ideas, nutritional information and healthy recipes, advice on how to quit smoking, tips on health screenings and more. The campaign will share links to information, photos, how-to videos and contact information, all using the hashtag #healthDE. The goal is to provide easy-to-implement small steps that are practical and will make a real difference in people's lives.

WHEN: 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 3
WHERE: Fusion Fitness Center, 280 E. Main St., #118, Newark (near Newark Natural Foods)
