Updates on the Pinellas County Wayfinding Project and on the Fun Bites initiative are among the topics on the agenda for the next meeting of the Healthy Pinellas Consortium at 1:30 PM on Thursday, March 17. The meeting is open to the public and community feedback is welcome. Meetings are held at the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County’s (DOH-Pinellas) MidCounty location in the Dharamraj Education Health Center, 8751 Ulmerton Rd., Largo.

The Healthy Pinellas Consortium grew out of Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) discussions that brought health providers and community groups together to assess and improve the health of the people of Pinellas. To view CHIP activities, go to http://pinellas.floridahealth.gov/programs-and-services/community-health-planning-andstatistics/data-and-reports/index.html.

All consortium meetings are open to the public and community feedback is welcome. The goal of the Healthy Pinellas Consortium is to create a culture of health and wellness with a vision of
making Pinellas one of the healthiest counties in Florida. Preventing disease and maintaining good health is easier when people and communities are surrounded by environments where the
healthy choice is the easy choice.

Consortium members share best practices centered around physical activity, healthy nutrition and the built environment in Pinellas County.

Consortium meetings are held on the third Wednesday of odd months. The next 2016 meetings will be on May 19, July 21, Sept. 15 and Nov. 17. For information, email
