I always like to take this time of year to not only wish people a Happy New Year, but to encourage everyone to include improving one's health as a resolution, if you do resolutions.
But even if you don't, it's always wise to work on good health habits --and to not give up if you slip every now and then.
One of the best things anyone can do to improve their health is to quit smoking. That goes for vaping as well. We can help with both of those.
We're in the middle of the flu season, so it's a good time to get a flu shot, if you haven't gotten one already.
If you've reviewed our website, you can see Tarrant County Public Health offers a lot of information and resources for a variety of health-related issues. Our job is to help keep residents healthy. Preventing diseases is our main task.
We're here to help in any way we can.
Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2020!
