imageI attended the Florida State Alliance Leadership Conference in Tampa last week and was excited to hear Mayor Chip Johnson of Hernando, MS discuss his leadership in building a healthier community.

“Your personal health is a personal choice,” he said. “My job is to create an atmosphere and an opportunity for good health. If you want to take advantage of it, that’s great. If you want to stay home on your couch, go ahead.”

Read about the health policies that have improved community health, increased property values, decreased healthcare costs, and demonstrated how a focus on health creates a better community for all.
