Families Living Well

Families Living Well

Welcome to Families Living Well!

St. Mary Medical Center is strongly committed to helping families live healthier. Our goal is to empower children and their families in Bucks County with the tools to make choices that lead to better, healthier lifestyles.

At Families Living Well, we encourage:

  • Eating healthfully
  • Getting more active
  • Believing in yourself
  • And if you eat healthy, are more active, and believe in yourself, you will become healthier!

St. Mary Medical Center has developed outreach programs to address the growing obesity epidemic in children and their increased risk for chronic diseases. By teaching the importance of eating healthier and moving more at an early age, we can reduce the incidence of diabetes, heart disease, asthma, and certain types of cancer in the community. We partner with school districts, local farm programs and other area recreational sites to bring these programs to families throughout Bucks County. Guided by program teachers who are certified professionals in nutrition, counseling and fitness, this program has shown proven success - in Bucks County and nationwide - in empowering families to eat healthy, move more, and feel good about themselves.
