As we begin to think about our 2012 New Year's resolutions and aspirations, we begin to evaluate our current state of mental and physical health as well as that of our communities. Getting healthy is often seen as a difficult and mentally stressful task yet it is one of the most important and rewarding challenges that people should work towards overcoming during the course of their lifetime.

From knowing your medical numbers to eating more nuts, enjoying a day at the Spa and becoming an advocate in your community, 10 Simple Steps to Get You & Your Community Healthy for 2012 will teach you the tips to planning a healthier and more fulfilling 2012.

The webinar: 10 Simple Steps to Get You & Your Community Healthy for 2012 was presented on Wednesday, December 7 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
