Griffin will host Wellness for Life
DERBY — Griffin Hospital is hosting a new installment of its Wellness for Life program, starting at 6 p.m. Feb. 26.
Wellness for Life is a 12-week, evidence-based lifestyle change program that helps prevent and treat many chronic diseases. According to a report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 80 percent of chronic diseases, like obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, can be prevented with better lifestyle choices in nutrition, activity and emotional health.
The program offers a custom fitness evaluation, individual nutritional guidance, one-on-one coaching, and small, interactive health seminars so participants can make a commitment to a healthier life. Each participant also receives a Fitbit, which helps track participants’ activity, sleep patterns and food intake.
Wellness for Life meets at The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby.
