WorkLife Programs classes to cover prevention, nutrition and more

WorkLife Programs offers classes on a variety of topics designed to educate employees and improve their overall health.

PREVENTION AND CHRONIC CONDITIONS

Webinar: What You Can Do to Prevent GI Distress
Nov. 28. 12:10-12:50 p.m.
Understanding how the digestive system works is the first step to preventing GI distress. Learn how healthy eating can help ease so many common disorders, such as heartburn, constipation, diverticulitis and IBS. The class also will discuss how to live successfully with chronic conditions such as lactose intolerance and an allergy to gluten.

NUTRITION AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Healthy Resolutions: Do Breakfast Daily (email-based)
Dec. 3-31.
The goal for December is to eat a healthy breakfast daily. Healthy Resolutions is a nine-month, email-based program geared at helping you change your health habits, one month at a time. Most of us start with great intentions of eating better and exercising more. Unfortunately, these vague goals are quickly forgotten and we lose our way. Resolve to change your habits. Each month focuses on a healthy behavior. Make a commitment to better health, one habit at a time. Emails will be sent from Linda Monahan, registered dietitian, WorkLife Programs. Please note that once you register for Healthy Resolutions, you will receive the emails for the following months as well. It is not necessary to register individually for each month.

WORK/LIFE BALANCE

Dec. 5. 12:10-12:50 p.m. Stewart Center, Room 313.
