EL Paso — Making healthy eating choices and being physically active are both key to living a long and healthy life. That’s why the City of El Paso Department of Public Health and the El Paso Zoo are excited to launch the new “Wild About Health” program featuring 14 new signs displayed throughout the zoo. In an effort to bring awareness to the program, organizers are planning a kick off health fair event later this month.
The event is made possible through a partnership with the UTEP Women’s Health Initiative and will feature various health and screening displays, zumba classes, martial arts demonstrations and more.
