Learn How to Eat Healthy and Become More Active
(Salisbury, Maryland) - If you are interested in losing weight, preventing diabetes and cardiovascular disease, or just want to work toward better health, sign up for the Lifestyle Balance Program starting November 6. The Wicomico County Health Department and the Mid-Shore Family YMCA are partnering to offer this 16 week program on Tuesday evenings at 5:15pm at the Y in Salisbury.
Certified Lifestyle Coaches will lead weekly educational sessions on healthy eating and physical activity, monitor participants’ weight loss, and provide individual support and coaching. Cost is $24 for Y members and $48 for non-members and includes program notebook, tracking journals, incentives, and use of the Y gym, pool and exercise classes.
“We are pleased to partner with the Y and offer the Lifestyle Balance Program to help our county residents lead healthier lives. I encourage those adults struggling with weight loss or at risk of developing type 2 diabetes to sign up,” says Lori Brewster, county Health Officer. “This program gives people the tools to change their behavior with a focus on good nutrition and increased activity. Many people will lose weight, but more importantly, they will reduce their risk of serious disease,” states Melissa Denault, Y Executive Director.
Lifestyle Balance is a Center for Disease Control National Diabetes Prevention Program and partially funded through a grant from the Community Health Resources Commission.
