Take Charge of Your Health – Small changes add up over time. You can start today!
[FERNDALE] – Sullivan 180, a non-profit organization born out of a grassroots effort to build a healthier Sullivan County, is excited to announce its first event in the bi-monthly health education series, Take Charge of Your Health. The inaugural workshop will provide information, offer resources and promote innovative ways for Sullivan County residents to live a healthier lifestyle.
The first program will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. at the CVI Center in Ferndale. An informative panel discussion highlighting free community resources and opportunities for health improvement will be moderated by Amanda Langseder, Director of Community Health at Greater Hudson Valley Health System.
Members of the distinguished panel include SueAnn Boyd, Sullivan 180 Community Health Champion/Healthy Schools Program Coordinator at Cornell Cooperative Extension; Regina Minena, One Complete Life Wellness Circle participant; Carol Park, Roscoe Club 180; Darrin Raynor, Sullivan County Wellness Coordinator/Deputy Management and Budget Commissioner; and Colleen Emery, Sullivan Renaissance Project Coordinator.
There will be opportunities to sign up for current wellness activities and learn about other opportunities for individuals, groups or worksites to receive training and support to start new wellness programs. Future programs in the Take Charge of Your Health series will be held at locations throughout the county and focus on specific topics such as the benefits of sleep or the lack thereof, brain health, diabetes or heart disease, or the needs of a particular population such as seniors, children or young adults.
The informative and inspiring evening will include delicious and healthy refreshments prepared by Chef Toni at the CVI Center, and the opportunity to network with your neighbors and others who are interested in healthy living.
