SASH program focuses on "3/4/50"
Did you know that just three behaviors can lead to the four conditions that account for 50% of all deaths in Vermont? The "3/4/50" campaign through the Vermont Department of Heath aims to draw attention to this startling fact and raise awareness about three behavioral changes people can make to prevent diseases and reduce mortality.
The SASH Program is spreading the word about 3/4/50 and helping seniors to implement these behaviors that can promote their health--for example by providing activities like Bone Builders and walking groups that increase physical activity, helping seniors access healthy meals, and supporting smoking cessation.
