A statewide campaign wants to help Alabamians adopt healthy lifestyle habits.

With help from Alabama Public Health and other local organizations, the Alabama Hospital Association offers prize incentives to successful participants in the 10-week program. Alabama Hospital Association Communications Director Jeanie Gaines said Scale Back “is designed to encourage Alabamians to lose weight, develop some healthier lifestyles and choices, and have fun while doing it.” Individuals must participate in teams of two. Those who lose 10 pounds between the January weigh-in and April weigh-out will be eligible for prizes.
