Accomplishing that starts right in our own office, where we are dedicated to uplifting our working moms and their families each and every day.

A hike or trip to the park with family or friends is a great way to stay active and healthy. Arizona is known for its outdoor activities, but unfortunately not everyone has an equal opportunity to experience them. Some places in our state have a shortage of parks, trails, and public spaces. Investing in these types of areas can have major benefits.
November marks the beginning of the season of giving. No one is too young to learn the importance of helping others. This holiday season, take your family out to assist those in need, all the while imparting habits and compassion to last a lifetime. There are family-friendly activities and organizations across Arizona for you and your loved ones to get involved with, so here are a few ideas to get you started!
October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate connections between schools, local farmers, and food.

This month, we’re exploring some of the ways schools can act as hubs of connection and promote wellness for children, families, and entire communities. When schools and communities unite, they create opportunities for everyone to thrive.

If you ask a child what their favorite subject in school is, you’re likely to hear “recess” as a response. Recess and interactive P.E. classes are not only a fun break from academic workouts in school – they also play a critical role in keeping our children healthy and happy.
We traditionally view health as the result of individual choices. While this can be true, there are other factors, including the resources and norms of our community that influence our choices without us always being aware. So how can we be sure the factors around us that impact our health are doing so for the better?
As a leader in your community, you have the power to create healthy environments and policies where you live, work, and play. Together, we can create vibrant communities that support healthy choices and lifestyles.
Pinnacle Prevention is dedicated to growing healthy families and communities, with a mission to inspire and advance a healthy food system and opportunities for active living.
