Coalition sponsors Healthy Anne Arundel Month

Healthy Anne Arundel Month (April 2014), sponsored by the Healthy Anne Arundel Coalition, is a special time to motivate Anne Arundel County residents to take steps toward better health. Through community collaborations, a variety of events will be implemented in April to bring awareness to the Coalition’s priority areas— obesity prevention and the management of substance abuse and mental health as co-occurring disorders.

The kickoff ceremony for the first Healthy Anne Arundel Month will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at the Anne Arundel County Farmers’ Market located at Riva Road and Harry S. Truman Parkway in Annapolis.

April 5, 2014 is also season opening day at the market, which will be open from 7 a.m. until noon. For more information about Healthy Anne Arundel Month activities and the Coalition, visit
