Healthy U is a community initiative to promote healthy lifestyles, good nutrition, and physical activity. Healthy U was created and is managed by the Healthy Living Action Group, a community coalition for health.
Healthy U has two main components, our student group and our community group. The twelve member student group is selected annually. The twelve adult students commit to a year-long program to learn a healthier lifestyle, change their lives for the healthier, and inspire others to do the same.
You can follow our students on our Facebook.
How can I get involved?
Our community group is open to the public and is free of charge. There is a community weight loss support group that meets every Thursday at 5:30 PM at the Bothwell Regional Health Center Education building. There are many other open group activities throughout the year that you can learn about here or on the Healthy U facebook page.
