Amerigroup Community Care of Georgia brought an old-fashioned farmers market to the Hinesville Housing Authority’s Regency Park Apartments last week.
At the Oct. 22 farmers market, Amerigroup Georgia conducted health screenings and provided health tips on various topics, including obesity, diabetes and nutrition.
In addition, Captain Amerigroup made a guest appearance and taught kids about eating healthy and staying active. The event ended with a dance contest, which was designed to keep children active and moving.
“We are excited to announce our new farmers market initiative,” said Fran Gary, president of Amerigroup Community Care of Georgia. “By providing fresh produce and promoting healthy eating in a community gathering place, our farmers market initiative will also educate the community about the importance of healthy eating and how to maintain an active lifestyle.”
Amerigroup, which will host various farmers markets throughout the state, is a WellPoint Inc. subsidiary that serves 7.7 million seniors, people with disabilities, low-income families, other state- and federally sponsored beneficiaries and Federal Government Solutions enrollees in 26 states.
Amerigroup Georgia provides ongoing community relations and outreach to encourage members to become active participants in their health care. Through health-education programs, members are empowered to choose and sustain healthy lifestyles.
