The Ohio Department of Health is partnering with the Ohio Department of Aging in challenging Ohioans to make aging everybody's business. Here at ODH, we say it is never too late for anyone to reinvent themselves and take control of their health. So, here are a few ways that you can take control of your health, no matter what your age.

  1. Start walking
  2. Stay up-to-date on immunizations and health screenings
  3. Take preventive measures when it comes to viruses and diseases
  4. Prevent falls
  5. Eat well
  6. Smile and take care of your teeth
