Healthy living centres
The healthy living centre is a municipal health service for those with or in risk of disease, and who can improve their lives by changing their living habits.
The healthy living centre offers services to help people change and master healthy living habits. The services offered may include discussions on health, physical activities, changes in diet and quitting smoking.
