getPHYT [get-fit] verb:

  1. To improve community health through education
  2. To apply public health practice to everyday life
  3. To raise public health awareness in the community

getPHYT is a blog dedicated to inform youth and teens about public health through educational and entertaining articles.

Born in September 2011, getPHYT is the brainchild of two friends catching up online. “We should make something for public health.” “What if we had a blog where we just pulled articles relevant to teens and public health?” “And then discussed what it actually means?” “Yeah!”

By mixing public health with popular culture, getPHYT hopes to show the younger generation that public health is exciting, applicable, and important.

getPHYT’s mission is to raise public health awareness among youth and teens so that in turn, they can raise awareness among their friends and communities.

  2. good site. Definitely good for young people to read. Hopefully you’re reaching out to them though. Most don’t seem to blog vs. tweet/FB. Nice layouts on the posts!

    Do they not have too many ethnic foods in Montana? Actually, probably not now that I think about it. 🙂 Maybe a few trips back to SoCal might help!
