 December 29, 2015 (Santee)--The City of Santee is a growing community in East County, and a great place to live and raise a family. Along with the rest of the country, it has a growing problem with obesity, chronic disease, and other health related problems.

 California Health Network is a nonprofit organization that was founded in Santee in 2012. Some of its efforts include East County’s first health and fitness expo, the East County Live Well Expo, and obesity prevention presentations to more than 60 local high school classes.

To help increase community awareness, California Health Network is promoting “Santee Health Awareness Month” in January of 2016, with the help of local officials and health related organizations.

“I am excited to be part of California Health Network’s Health Awareness Month and to join East County in starting off a new year with an active mind and body.”- California State Senator, Joel Anderson. Santee City Councilman John Minto is helping promote fitness by leading a walk on Saturday, January 23rd at 8am, at Walker Preserve in Santee.

 More than 30 local health, fitness and wellness organizations are offering free and discounted services throughout the month.

 Offers include free fitness training, blood pressure screenings, classes, and more. There are also many generous discounts offered, as well.

If you are a resident of Santee, please check out the offers at http://californiahealthnetwork.org/healthawarenessmonth, and LIKE the California Health Network Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CaliforniaHealthNetwork/, and receive health tips and information throughout the month of January.

 You can also help support the cause by offering a free or discounted health related service for the month of January, or offer to display a “Health Awareness Month” poster in your place of business. This can be done at californiahealthnetwork@gmail.com.
