Health Self Management Program at Via West a Big Hit!

As you may know, this summer Via West implemented a wellness program called Across the Lifespan.  Much of this program was developed by our very own Sandy Keefe, RN.  Through three programs; nutrition, physical activity, and health self management, our participants learned how to eat right, exercise, and make good choices that will promote healthy living.  We recently received some feedback from Robin Carbone on what this program has meant to her son Ben:

"Hi Sandy,

I just want to let you know the Health Self-Management program has been a big hit with Ben.  Since he's come home from camp he routinely uses the Go, Slow, Whoa food categories and requested whole grain pasta for dinner.  He's taking more bike rides and showing his cousins how you can use the Wii for exercise.  

Ben loves to learn and this program really engaged him. He is quite proud that he can recite the five rights of medication.  Thanks to you and your entire team, and especially Jennifer who worked with Ben.  Last week at camp was quite special for him. 


Robin "

Thank you, Robin, for your kind words.  We are absolutely thrilled that Ben liked the program and we look forward to offering more of these types of programs in the future!
