Healthy Lodi - Families

Lodi is an overachiever — in all the unhealthy places

The Healthy Lodi Initiative was created in response to the sobering statistics about the health of our community. Many diseases afflicting us today can be reduced, slowed or even prevented with simple lifestyle changes. And while Californians tend to lead lifestyles that are healthier compared to residents in other states, the exception is the Central Valley — in particular San Joaquin County, home of Lodi.
