SCAN’s new three-week “Healthy Living” series will be held from 9:30-10:30 a.m. each Wednesday beginning May 8 at the SCAN Connections Resource Center, 1313 E. Osborn Road.
The first week (May 8) will cover eating smart, focusing on senior nutrition and preparing tasty, nutritious meals. Week two (May 15), called “Stay Active,” will look at the benefits of physical activity, guidelines for older adults, the risks of inactivity and tips on getting started. The final week (May 22), called “Get Fit,” is designed to help seniors improve their strength, balance and mobility through exercises featuring chair and resistance-band moves. Each participant will receive a free stretch band.
Presentations are free and open to SCAN members as well as the general public; however, space is limited, so pre-registration is required. Call 602-778-3420 to register.
