Healthy Eating for Successful Living
This interesting and interactive program focuses on heart and bone healthy nutrition strategies to help maintain or improve wellness and independence and prevent chronic disease development or progression.
Join us for this educational, hands-on program to better understand healthy nutrition. The participants will meet on Mondays from Feb. 4 - Mar. 18 (excluding Feb. 18) in the Classroom.
