Health Disparities

Our Community

Physical Health can be an intimidating subject. As life grows increasingly busy, our health and exercise take a backseat to work, school, family, and all the unexpected circumstances life throws at us. Shorter lunch breaks lead to fast foods, lack of movement at work or school adds to back and shoulder pain, and the absolute absence of energy when you get home discourages you from an afternoon jog.

Nutrition and Exercise Education

Realizing that exercise is only part of the battle, TCDC has teamed up with local organizations to offer monthly nutrition and exercise events. These events are open to the public as a way to help our community understand the importance of health and exercise. Check the TCDC events page to find out when our next event is!
