Summertime is the time when more families get together to enjoy some
well-earned vacation time. Some families travel outside the state to get
away from the heat, while others may choose to stay in Arizona and take in
the natural beauty of the desert. Some families are not in a position to do
either, and simply try to enjoy their local parks and facilities. Take this
time to educate your patients on both the benefits and dangers of outdoor
activities in Arizona! Just an hour a day of active exercise is no problem
when students are enjoying an early-morning walk, or taking time to hike the
Grand Canyon with their family.
Talk to your patients about planning something special for parents on July
26th—National Parents Day! This day was founded to promote responsible
parenting in our society and to uplift ideal parental role models,
especially for our nation's children. Encourage your patients to plan some
good, healthy, and active family time this month to strengthen those bonds
and parental role models! Remember—social health and strong family
interaction is just as important as mental and physical health! Find out

Health Care Providers Ideas:
- Does your officer offer worksite wellness classes and services? If
not, consider starting them up. Good behavior begins by modeling!
- Help drive change for your patients and their families! Ask them how
active they are—and help them plan to meet at least an hour a day!
