See for yourself what the nearly 500 participants in 2012 were talking about. Everyone is welcome!

The program, co-sponsored by Edmonds Community College, begins May 13, 2013 at the Lynnwood Convention Center and runs six consecutive weeks from 6:30-8 p.m., ending June 17.

Free on-site childcare will be provided.

The six sessions focus on specific topics presented by Joe Piscatella:

  • Make Your Health Last as Long as Your Life on May 13 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
  • Eating Healthy in a World on May 20 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
  • Move It or Lose It on May 28 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
  • Take A Load Off Your Heart on June 3 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
  • Raising Fit Kids in a Fast World on June 10 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
  • Healthy Cooking at Home on June 17 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

On some of these evenings, Joe will be joined by local experts in the field. These 90-minute presentations will include facts to get you thinking differently about your health and practical tips to apply to your daily life. Joe offers up a weekly challenge as well, as a means to get you acting upon what you've learned. Joe incorporates fun, humorous stories and personal experiences that are relatable and impactful, setting this program apart from many other wellness programs you may have encountered.

Biometric health screenings from Swedish Edmonds will help participants better gauge their overall health at the beginning of the program and again at the end. In 2012, participants who did biometrics dropped an average of 13 points from their total cholesterol and 11.8 points in the LDL cholesterol and increased self-reported exercise time. The biometric results showed an improvement, on average, in all categories assessed.

The program fee is $49 per person, but the value of the biometric screenings alone is $100. Scholarships are available, and groups of 10 or more can receive a discounted rate.
