Identifying Health Risks: When you engage in risk behaviors, it can harm your HEALTH

  • Unhealthy dietary behaviors
  • Inadequate physical activity
  • Alcohol and Drug use
  • Sexual behaviors that can result in STD’s and unintended pregnancies

  • Eating a variety of healthy foods each day
  • Being active 30-60 min. most days of the week
