Be Healthy and Practice Safe Swimming This Summer

Full Story

This week, Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County (DOH-Okaloosa) is observing Healthy and Safe Swimming Week and encourages the public to maximize the health benefits of swimming. Water-based physical activity has health benefits for everyone, but it does come with some risks. Everyone plays a role in preventing illnesses and injuries linked to the water we use and enjoy. Every day in the United States, two children younger than 14 years of age die from drowning.
