Starting in September, a new, year-long initiative called "Healthy Paramount" will be introduced to the City. Spearheaded by AppleCare Medical Group, "Healthy Paramount" will involve special events, health screenings, and programs designed to encourage healthy behaviors among Paramount residents.
The kick-off event for "Healthy Paramount" will be on Saturday, September 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Salud Park, 7167 Somerset Blvd. It will feature fun activities focused on health, fitness, and nutrition. There will be Zumba and yoga presentations, soccer and softball clinics for kids, face painting and arts and crafts, health screenings, cooking demonstrations on healthy eating, music, refreshments, and raffle prizes (including a new Apple iPad).
Also at the event, you will be able to sign up for the "Healthy Paramount Passport" that will have health tips, help individuals set goals for the upcoming year, and provide opportunities for health screenings from local participating doctors and clinics.
So put on your walking shoes and join the community for a day in the park at "Healthy Paramount." In addition to AppleCare, the program is sponsored by the City of Paramount, the Paramount Chamber of Commerce, the Los Cerritos YMCA, Lakewood Regional Medical Center, Lifegate Church, HealthCare Career College, NRG Fitness, Northgate Markets, Paramount Youth Soccer Organization, and MUSA (PEP Moms).
