INShape Indiana To Host 5th Annual Health Summit

INDIANAPOLIS---On Tuesday, September 29, INShape Indiana will focus on "Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities" at its fifth annual Health Summit at Indiana State University's Hulman Center in Terre Haute.

 

Gov. Daniels launched INShape Indiana in 2005 to challenge Hoosiers to eat better, move more, and avoid tobacco.  Indiana State University (ISU), the Indiana State Department of Health and the Indiana Rural Health Association are joining forces as organizers of the fifth annual event.

 

"INShape Indiana has always been about improving the health of Hoosiers through efforts at the local community level," said State Health Commissioner Judy Monroe, M.D.  "This year's Summit will be a great opportunity for our public health champions on the local level to share their success stories and inspire others to take action."

 

Dr. Monroe will provide opening remarks, along with ISU President Daniel J. Bradley; and Richard "Biff " Williams, dean of ISU's College of Nursing, Health, and Human Services.   

 

Kenneth Cooper, M.D., "The Father of Aerobics," will keynote the event, and community representatives from around the state will share their successes in working toward a healthier community.  The event will also offer opportunities for attendees to network with others who have created successful local programs in their communities.  Afternoon activities, which begin at 1:00 p.m., are free of charge to the public. 

 

            WHEN:            Tuesday, September 29, 2009

                                    8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
