UGA Extension’s Walk Georgia program was relaunched Feb. 1. The updated site features fitness tracking and encourages Georgians to increase their activity with dozens of resources like strength training demonstrations, healthy recipes and lists of local fitness amenities. The program aims by 2016 to reduce obesity in the state by 5 percent.
“We wanted to ensure that Walk Georgia emphasized what citizens already have, which are their local county resources, university-based research and practical knowledge through UGA’s Extension offices,” said Maria Bowie, director of Walk Georgia.
