Good nutrition, physical activity, and a healthy body weight are essential parts of a person’s overall health and well-being. Together, they can help lower the risk of serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight are key to managing health conditions and improving the health of Americans at every age.
About Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators
The Leading Health Indicators (LHIs) represent a smaller set of Healthy People 2020 objectives selected to communicate high-priority health issues and actions to help address them. LHIs help assess the health of the Nation, facilitate collaboration across sectors, and motivate action to improve the health of the U.S. population.
