Why We Promote Health
The continuing national debate over health care has brought awareness to most Americans that a focus on wellness is critical to any possible solution. While there have been major breakthroughs in drawing attention to the obesity epidemic and the overall need to get people moving more and eating healthier, we need a breakthrough in people taking action. The mission of We Promote Health (WPH) is to bring together the entire community, challenging every organization, public and private, and every citizen, to make a commitment to healthy living.

What We Do
We Promote Health (WPH) has taken on a leadership role in organizing and coordinating several Howard County community-wide programs in partnership with other leading organizations, both public and private, that share our vision. Among these programs is Family Wellness Day, a one day showcase promoting physical activity and healthy lifestyle and highlighting the many activities and programs that support wellness efforts in our schools, workplaces and community. This annual free event takes place the first Sunday in June at Centennial Park. WPH serves as the coordinating partner for Get Active Howard County (GAHC), a free 10 week physical fitness initiative. This program continues to grow with it's primary mission to provide and encourage participation in broad based wellness opportunities for every individual in Howard County. Many of our calendar events and programs will become year-round. GAHC will promote rapidly expanding opportunity for everyone in the county to enjoy ongoing physical and educational opportunities and wellness screenings. WPH coordinates WeCan! programs for Howard County elementary schools. WeCan! is a special program developed by NIH to support families in integrating physical activity, nutrition and reduced screen time into their daily lives. WeCan stands for Ways to Enhance Childrens Physical Activity and Nutrition. WPH is one of a growing number of organizations helping to make this program available to parents and children throughout the country.
We provide solutions, support and collaboration toward solving the problem of obesity, and encouraging healthy lifestyles in our homes, schools and workplaces. It is our hope that We Promote Health will have a positive impact on the health of our community, employers, schools, the food and beverage industries, families and community groups that share our concern and passion for promoting health and wellness.
