Think you’ve got what it takes to earn the title “Public Health Hero?” KSMU’s Missy Shelton reports on a new program from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.

If you’ve been thinking about ways to improve your health, the Springfield-Greene County Health Department invites you to put your plans into action and compete for the title of “Public Health Hero.”Jaci McReynolds is the Public Information Administrator for the health department.

McReynolds says that during the five week program, the public can follow the progress of participants online.

Weekly winners will receive prizes that promote a healthy lifestyle. And at the end of the five-week period, the public will vote for an overall winner who will receive 15 free visits to the Chesterfield Family Center. McReynolds says she hopes the program will demonstrate that small changes can make a big difference in an individual’s overall health.The program starts off next week and anyone can sign up to participate in the Public Health Hero program. You just need to call 874-1205 or send an email to health [at] springfieldmo [dot] gov And we have a link to the blog where you can follow the progress of the program participants on our website: ksmu.org
