Kristen Doucette will be moderating an expert panel on heart health matters. Here is a great opportunity to ask those really tough questions to the panel of experts. The event is in Hastings at the Field House. Here is a link to the directions to get there. It is only 30 minutes. Let me know if you can make it and I will register you.

Join Exercise Therapist Stephanie Gibson from the Regional Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program for an informative session. Learn how vascular disease develops, the risk factors and how exercise can help prevent and/or manage cardiovascular disease.
At the end of the meeting we will review the results of the On Track survey. If you have not completed it use the link below.
Am I On Track?
I would like to present the survey results at our October 9th meeting where the topic is exercise and vascular health.
I have heard from many of you but there are still quite a few that have not completed the survey. It should not take you more than 3-4 minutes. Please click the link below and complete it now.
On Track Survey
September always seems like a new year to me. Maybe it’s memories of going back to school or the fact that summer is coming to an end. It is a good time to reflect on our habits and make plans for any adjustments we think we might need.
Click on the link below to complete a simple survey (it will take you 2-3 minutes). This will let you score yourself on how well you are staying on track to a heart healthy lifestyle.
On Track Survey
We will share the summary results and compare them to to last year. Please try to do the survey as soon as you get this BLOG. The survey is confidential.
I cannot remember who borrowed the Younger Next Year books but please bring them to the September Meeting. They will be passed on to other peers.
Our guest subject area expert was not available on the 10th, so we have moved back to Wednesday September 11th @ 1:30 PM in at the Wellness Center – Room C, not Room A.
Wear comfortable clothing as this session will involve stretching and flexibility.
We have had to move our meeting in September to the 10th due to a conflict at the Wellness Center. Our complete year programming calendar will be released and posted on the website in the next couple of weeks.
The article you can view by clicking the link below is from the Mayo Clinic. It is a good summary reminder of the foods that can help with cholesterol management. I found it interesting to reflect on my current eating patterns and use this as a checklist to identify nutrition improvement opportunities.

Two dietitians from the PFHT will be running a workshop for us on Craving Change. This will be an introductory session. You will learn why you eat the way you do and what to do about it. This is not a diet workshop and they won’t tell us what to eat.
This workshop responds to comments from grads at the last meeting that basically say we all know what to eat and what not to eat, but how to stick to healthy eating patterns?
We need an idea of attendance to finalize location. Please complete the form below.
A few times a year our Grad Group gets a chance to talk about the group to current patients in the two Friday classes. Several of our grads have already done this but we need a couple of volunteers for May 24th. All you need to do is just talk for 5 minutes about our group and perhaps how it has been beneficial to you. Please complete the form below to let me know if you an help out, I will be in touch.
