Small changes, BIG results.
Healthy Eating and Active Living Nevada (HealNV) is a community engagement initiative developed by the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health to promote healthier behaviors that can reduce conditions like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s, and cancer in our State. Through strategic policy shifts, system enhancements, and a supportive environment, this initiative seeks to empower Nevadans to integrate healthy choices into everyday life effortlessly. The first program under this initiative is the NV 5-2-1-0 Program, which will start working with healthcare providers to support and guide their patients in adopting HEAL behaviors. Importantly, the versatile NV 5-2-1-0 Program can be implemented across various sectors within the community, and in this instance, it is being rolled out within the healthcare provider sector. This strategic step amplifies the program’s reach and impact, fostering healthier lives through collaboration between medical professionals, health districts, and medical societies and bodies across Nevada
