A Vision for a Healthier Utah

Published in Plenary Sessions

Session Description

Your Utah Your Future is a great representation of how we do business in our state. We can achieve better health outcomes by planning for the future and taking action today. Facilitating the implementation of community features like trails, bike lanes, and sidewalks can help get people out of their cars and using their feet. Running, jogging, or walking for recreation, commuting, or to just get around will provide a direct benefit to our lives and perhaps even our waistlines.
