Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital offers free health workshop

OSCEOLA COUNTY — A Personal Action Toward Health Workshop is being offered by Spectrum Health Reed City Hospital beginning Wednesday, Oct. 1.

The six week workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Reed City Depot, located at 200 North Chestnut St. PATH is a workshop for anyone who wants to get healthy. Whether you have a chronic disease or condition such as COPD, diabetes, chronic pain or depression, or you are a healthy person who is a caregiver for someone with a chronic illness, you are welcome to attend the free workshops.

PATH is an evidence-based program created by Stanford University’s office of services to the aging. The program is taught by Tina Bogart, case manager for Evart Family Practice, and Tricia Daily, care management coordinator for Reed City Family Practice.

They are prepared to guide you through the six workshops, empowering you to communicate with your health care team, take medications as prescribed and face the daily challenges of living with an ongoing health condition. Those who have been through the PATH workshops say they have more energy, less pain, get more exercise, feel more comfortable talking to their doctors and are more confident they can manage their health.

The program is free and no referral from a health care provider is necessary. Anyone that wants to take control of their health can attend, but advance registration is required.

In order to achieve the full benefit, please plan to attend all six workshops. To register, contact Tricia Dailey at (231) 832-8476 or Patricia.Dailey@spectrumhealth.org or Tina Bogart at (231) 832-7115. or Tina.Bogart@spectumhealth.org.
