Women Embracing and Loving Life
Because breast cancer affects a woman both physically and emotionally, The Breast Center at St. Joseph Medical Center offers a healthy lifestyle program facilitated by a registered dietician for women diagnosed with breast cancer. The program is called WELL (Women Embracing and Loving Life).
This free eight-week program provides support and encouragement for breast cancer survivors to become more engaged in a healthier lifestyle with support from fellow survivors.
The goal-based class includes nutrition education, cardiovascular and strength training, along with group support. Participants receive food diaries and activity trackers for self reporting.
The WELL program was recognized at a National Consortium of Breast Centers meeting in March 2011.
Classes start on the following dates and continue for eight consecutive weeks. To register, click on one of the links below or call 816-943-2584.
