The D.C. Council is looking to push District residents to live healthier lives.

Ward 1 Councilman Jack Evans is planning to introduce a bill that would create a Mayor's Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Nutrition.

The health council would provide residents with information on workplace wellness programs and other opportunities, both public and private, to exercise and learn more about healthy nutrition options.

It would also look for opportunities to form new health-related programs.
