Safe and Healthy Me
Here in Alaska, there's a place online to find out how to prevent injuries, and prevent and manage chronic health conditions. Those conditions may be related to weight gain, tobacco use or cancer.
That place is Safe and Healthy Me.
There are many resources to help us be as healthy and safe as possible. Many of these tools are right here in Alaska. A campaign called Play Every Day gets Alaska kids moving.

Alaskans are making changes. They are taking steps - small and large - to improve their health.
They are making time for physical activity, choosing to eat healthy foods, and losing weight. They are scheduling important health screenings to catch diseases early, when they are often easier to treat. They are signing up for free classes in their communities to improve their balance and their fitness.
We hope their stories will inspire and empower you in your journey to become safe and healthy.
