Steps to a Healthier You (FREE)!
KANAB, UT – The Southwest Utah Public Health Department (SWUPHD) is offering “Steps to a Healthier You”, a free 8-week class that helps participants make simple, sustainable changes for a healthier lifestyle. It will be held at the SWUPHD office at 445 N. Main on Tuesdays from 1 to 2:00pm, starting September 3rd. The course also includes a free A1C test.
“Food choices and lack of physical activity play a major role in putting people at increased risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease,” says Delaney Matheson, SWUPHD Health Educator and class instructor. “By making changes to eat a little better and move more, people can really make a difference in reducing their risk of these serious diseases.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes has more than tripled in the last twenty years as the American population has aged and become more overweight or obese.
