The #HealthySelfieTC social media campaign is an effort to increase our community’s involvement in improving health in Tuolumne County. The goal of #healthyselfietc is to highlight how community members find easy, affordable ways to stay healthy in our county. Health happens in our communities and we need your help showing that not only is it possible, but also easy and fun, to live healthfully in Tuolumne County.
Participating in the campaign is easy – just snap, tag, post! We encourage residents to share their healthy activity on their social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram, by adding the hashtag #healthyselfietc to their post caption. Easy healthy activities can include taking a walk around your neighborhood or local trail, adding more vegetables to your plate, or choosing water over soda with your meal. There are a variety of ways to stay healthy and we want to see how you do it! By sharing these activities and pictures online, we hope to inspire other residents to try new ways to live healthfully or link them to local resources that can help.
Through the campaign we hope to change the conversation about health in our community from a negative focus to positive health movements within our neighborhoods. Over time, we hope the campaign catalyzes a shift of thinking about health in Tuolumne County that de-normalizes tobacco use, promotes healthy and active living, and reinforces the importance of preventive care.
