Forget the New Year’s resolutions. Most of them fall by the wayside. How about taking stock of your life as it is right now? What do you eat? How much exercise do you do? What type of thought patterns predominate in your mind? Now is the best time to learn how to take care of your precious self. For those ready to start the new year on the right foot, Crouse Hospital will host “An Integrative Lifestyle for Optimal Health,” an educational seminar — free and open to the public — on Tuesday, Jan. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Parking is also free in the Marley and Crouse garages. To register, call 315-472-2464.
A healthy lifestyle encompasses much more than eating healthy and exercising. There are other risks to our well-being to consider, and ways to address those risks, to promote optimal health. Join Scott Treatman, DO, MPH, director of Crouse Hospital’s Employee Health Services and a certified acupuncturist, and Dulce Fernandez, MS, PHE, Employee Wellness Coordinator, Onondaga County, as they explore an integrative approach to being well. Exercise, healthy foods, eating patterns, spirituality, stress reduction and other modalities will be discussed, and questions will be answered during this interactive presentation, including how to assess your current health status.
