Senior and Family Services, Purdue Extension-Daviess County, and the Marion VA Medical Center offer a free healthy lifestyle program, “MOVE! Towards a Healthier You.”
The eight-week lifestyle program will meet on Tuesdays from 1 p.m. starting May 13 through July 1 at Senior and Family Services located at 211 E. Main St., Washington. The program will highlight the importance of making informed food choices and developing personalized eating and physical activity plan to achieve a healthier weight and reduce risk and complications of chronic disease.
This community-based program is offered free to all community members. Advanced registration is recommended but not required. It will last eight weeks.
“Research is showing that diet, genetics, lack of sleep and physical inactivity play a major role in America’s obesity epidemic and America’s weight affects their overall health. We can’t control our genetics, but we do have control over our food and activity choices. The food that we choose contains hidden information and can talk to your genes. If you can learn this language, you can alter how food interacts with your body, lose weight, and most of all, optimize health” said Dr. Cathy Ludwig-Bell, MOVE Coordinator from the Marion VA Medical Center.
