Saturday, February 9th
, we will be collaborating with Glassell Park Neighborhood Council and many community partners to provide a comprehensive workshop on Health and Wellness, with a special focus on prevention of disease.
The session will be held at the
Glassell Park Senior Center, 3700 Verdugo Road from 10am-12pm.
This is a critical topic for the community. In Los Angeles County, the rates of diabetes are higher than they are statewide.
According to the American Diabetes Association, "People with diagnosed diabetes incur average medical expenditures of $16,752 per year, of which about $9,601 is attributed to diabetes." This is a disease that takes away the NELA community's physical health, mental health, and economic power.
Our workshop will feature: *Meditation/Self Hypnosis with Carmela Tunzi *Workshop from RN PHD candidate Adrienne Martinez about Diabetes and Mental Health *Resources from Arroyo Vista Family Health Center *Workshop from the Northeast Mental Health Center *Fitness Demonstration with John Dubb **Healthy refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there and learning together how we can keep our community healthy!
