Active Individuals + Families
Keeping a family active and healthy is easier when you are prepared. Be sure to minimize the possible health risks by dressing appropriately, checking the weather report before you go out, carrying a first aid kit, and keeping your health information with you, especially on day-long adventures. Consult your family physician for advice. You can also find realiable online sources like Tick Encounter. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) also maintains up to date information on physical activity and related topics.
