Hello Everyone,

The importance of good health is something we hear discussion about. But what does having good health really mean? To each person the definition could be very different. We have the physical metrics we can measure like blood pressure, cholesterol and weight. These measurements can be compared to national standards that define acceptable ranges. To really look at good health we have to go beyond just the physical measurements. There are other things to consider for overall optimal health that include having adequate sleep, reducing stress and having a social support network.

As we go into 2023, I would like for you to consider how you define good health. There are a wealth of resources at the Healthpark with exercise opportunities, educational classes and even a chance to find support by seeing the Lifestyle and Sports medicine physician Dr. Scott Black. Other resources include those found on the Credible Mind website at This mental health resource that includes assessments, videos and educational articles is offered through a partnership with Owensboro Health and RiverValley Behavioral Health. No matter what your individual needs may be, our team is here to connect you with the resources to support you in achieving your health goals!
