Embrace Wellness Program Helps Cancer Survivors Thrive

Following cancer treatments, many cancer survivors are eager to adopt healthy lifestyle changes to continue their successful cancer journey but do not know where to start.  To help cancer survivors thrive in survivorship, Carroll Hospital’s Tevis Center for Wellness is offering the Embrace Wellness program on Tuesdays from September 8 to November 24 from 5:15 – 6:30 p.m.
Designed for cancer survivors who have completed active treatment, the program supports continued healing and helps participants enhance their health and overall well-being throughout survivorship.

During the program, participants will have access to a range of services including self-care activities, 12 weeks of nutrition education and wellness classes, a fitness assessment and weekly exercise classes with NovaCare Rehabilitation.

“This program is meant to be a fun and informative experience where people can come together in a safe environment to improve their health and wellness,” said Bridgette Bostic, R.D.N., community nutrition educator at the Tevis Center for Wellness. “During our nutrition classes, for example, we will discuss many topics including how to incorporate whole foods for optimum nutrition and ways to successfully lose weight and keep it off.”

The fee for the program is $50 per person and registration is required.
