MCCH CENTER FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS HOSTING OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY, JANUARY 23

The public is invited to learn about good wellness habits and receive free health screenings during a New Year Open House at the Center for Health and Wellness on Saturday, January 23 from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

The Wellness Center is kicking off the first community campaign of the Calloway County Wellness Consortium, Rethink Your Drink, with free giveaways, a free 10-minute chair massage and free health screenings:  body mass index, waist circumference and hemoglobin A1C blood draw (3 month average blood sugar, no fasting required).  The Calloway County Wellness Consortium's Obesity Workgroup has a 5 year strategic plan titled "Lighten Up Calloway".  The Rethink Your Drink campaign challenges individuals to decrease liquid sugar consumption over a three week period.

Guided tours of the facility will include the fitness floor (includes treadmills, elliptical cross-trainers, stationary bikes, strength equipment and free weights), gymnasium, five-lane swimming pool and locker rooms.  In addition, guests may work out free of charge this day and the regular joining fee for the Center will be waived with a 6-month contract.
