Events teach healthy eating and self-management of health problems
Mystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) will present two free virtual workshop series in January and February 2023.
“Healthy Eating for Successful Living” will be held on Tuesdays, January 31 to February 28, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Learn how to connect virtually through a Zoom platform and take this free class from the comfort of your home. Throughout the series, you’ll learn more about how nutrition, physical activity and lifestyle changes can promote better health. This virtual workshop series focuses on heart- and bone-healthy nutrition strategies to help maintain or improve wellness and prevent chronic disease development or progression in older adults. Healthy Eating uses the USDA’s MyPlate as a framework.
“My Life; My Health,” a virtual chronic disease self-management workshop series, will be held from Monday, February 6 to March 20, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (no class on Feb. 20). Learn how to connect virtually through a Zoom platform and take this free class from the comfort of your home. You don’t want chronic disease, pain or discomfort to limit the activities and life you enjoy. The series is for anyone living with an ongoing medical condition, such as arthritis, asthma, chronic back pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, COPD, diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart disease, high blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease or stroke. Topics will include managing and controlling pain, beginning (or improving) an exercise program, handling stress and learning to relax, increasing energy, and eating for your health and well-being.
Class size is limited for both workshop series, so reserve your spot today. To register, or if you have any questions about the program, contact Donna Covelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-388-4867.
