  • There’s still time to register your school-age children for Lake Regional Health System’s Trim Kids program, a practical approach to weight loss and healthy living led by trained health care professionals.
     This free, nine-week program will include nutrition, exercise and behavior modification components, such as self-esteem building, emotional pitfalls and stress management.
     Because parental involvement is necessary for achieving program goals, at least one parent or legal guardian is required to attend each session with their child. Parents also are expected to implement the principles presented, including shopping for and cooking healthier foods, participating in their child’s exercise program and helping their child meet established goals.
     An informational meeting is scheduled 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, for registrants and their parents. The program will be held each Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m., beginning March 7 and ending May 2. Sessions will be held in Lake Regional Hospital’s third floor conference rooms. 
    Visit lakeregional.com/events to register. Space is limited. Call 573-348-8222 for more information.
     Lake Regional offers a variety of educational programming topics during the year, such as diabetes, heart disease and childhood obesity. Several health fairs and screenings also are held annually throughout the lake area. For information on upcoming events, visit lakeregional.com/events.
