On September 4, 2014 CNN announced Napa was among in the top 10 healthiest places across the world. Napa was included in the top ten after an overwhelming response by community members from across Napa County to the CNN 10 Project video contest promoted by Live Healthy Napa County in July and August. As of the deadline out of 145 total videos from across the US, 56 were from Napa County! The videos were posted by a diverse cross-section of residents showing how Napa County inspires them to be healthy. You can watch all the videos on the CNN 10 Project page and Live Healthy Napa County's YouTube Channel.
“The CNN 10 Project asked local residents to show how the place they lived inspires them to be healthy,” said Cara Mae Wooledge, Health Education Specialist for Napa County Public Health, “We are inspired in many passionate and creative ways to be healthy by Napa County, but obviously we still face many challenges. Together we can turn inspiration into coordinated action to create measureable results in the health of our community.”
