The Worcester County Health Department will launch the third session of our online health and wellness program, Worcester Wellness Weigh (WWW), this March. The program is supported by a grant from the Maryland Community Health Resources Commission. WWW is a free, technology-based, healthy lifestyle and weight loss program designed specifically for families who are ready to work together to lose weight, eat healthier, increase physical activity, and improve their overall health.
The 12-week program includes easy-to-use online learning education lessons on healthy eating, cooking, meal planning, grocery shopping, food preservation, food budgeting, physical activity, stress and time management. Participants will monitor their activity and nutrition through the use of technology and apps. Members of WWW will be assigned a personal Physical Activity and Nutrition Coach who will monitor and review weekly goals, successes, and challenges. Individuals will also have the opportunity to participate in group walking programs and fun-filled monthly events.
Worcester Wellness Weigh is offered by Worcester Health in partnership with Chesapeake Health Care, Salisbury University, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, University of Maryland Extension, Wor-Wic Community College, Atlantic Club Garden of Hope, Atlantic General Hospital Community Garden, and Pocomoke Corner Sanctuary Community Garden. Orientation for the program will occur at the times listed below. Those interested in participating in the Worcester Wellness Weigh program must register by March 3, 2020.
