February 12th is Hug Day

It's Valentine’s Week and today, February 12th, is Hug Day.

It’s hard to deny the power a simple hug can have over our moods and general well-being. It’s amazing how such a simple gesture can just melt your troubles away.

You hug someone to celebrate their highest of highs and to soothe them during their lowest of lows. Hugs help lower stress, increase mutual trust, and lower blood pressure, among so many other benefits. Hug a person you love today — it’s free!

Approximately 450 years ago, the term ‘hug’ was first recorded in Old Norse. It’s believed to have sprung from the verb ‘hugga,’ which meant ‘to comfort.’

From Jeff Neagle, Communications Specialist
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

The Adair County Health Department has been named the 2023 County Health Center of Excellence by the Lake Cumberland District Health Department.

The Lake Cumberland District is comprised of ten counties in southern Kentucky. Throughout the year, each county is measured in 36 categories of standards that the district established for local departments. These criteria include areas such as productivity, patient satisfaction, utilization reviews, audits, and inspections.

After scores were tallied at the end of the year, the Adair County Health Department finished number one overall in the rankings.

"I am very proud of Adair County as our overall winner and all the individual category winners," said LCDHD Director Amy Tomlinson. "We've had three different winners over the last three years. This is a very competitive award and I think it shows the pride each county has in their service to the community where they live and work."

This marks the first time the Adair County Health Department has won the award.
