Creating a More Active Community - Sixty-one (61%) of adults are overweight and 25% of children are overweight or at risk of becoming overweight. Heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death in Oneida County. Physical activity helps prevent obesity, heart disease, and cancer. The accessibility of sidewalks and trails is associated with increased physical activity.
