Senator Anwar, South Windsor Mayor Paterna, Healthy South Windsor Announce Community Health Mobile App

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT – Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) joined South Windsor Mayor Andrew Paterna, South Windsor Town Council Member Cesar Lopez, community and strategic marketing specialist Liliana Serrano and representatives from the South Windsor Sustainability Foundation Inc. at Evergreen Walk to announce the release of a South Windsor-based health app for mobile phones. The result of collaborations between medical professionals and community leaders, the Healthy South Windsor app will support the local community and emphasize the advantages of living a healthy lifestyle. Sen. Anwar, Mayor Paterna and Councilman Lopez were among South Windsor leaders who played key roles in the app’s development.

“It is imperative for everyone to be conscious of their health, and to live their lives in healthy ways,” said Sen. Anwar. “As a physician, I know first-hand that healthy living leads to a better life. I am so happy to help introduce this app to the South Windsor community. It contains plenty of information on how to assist your health in many ways, with specific focus on eating right and exercising properly. This app will benefit everyone who downloads it.”

“As a professor of exercise, health and wellness at Manchester Community College, I have a chance to see just how fitness can impact people’s well-being,” said Mayor Paterna. “I believe this app gives people the tools to take the first steps toward better living and longer, healthier lives, benefitting not just them but their families and loved ones as well.”

The Healthy South Windsor app is free to the public and available on the Apple iOS App Store and the Google Play Store with no subscription required. It includes features like a step counter, a calories-burned calculator, daily healthy recipes, weekly workout routines, blogs on healthy living and a schedule of community events further supporting living a healthy and successful life. The Healthy South Windsor team plans to hold workshops and seminars regarding these topics to further educate the community on these topics.
