VITERBO NURSING STUDENTS SEEK VOLUNTEERS FOR SENIOR WELLNESS PROGRAM
LA CROSSE, Wis.-The Viterbo University School of Nursing is looking for volunteers age 60 and older who are interested in improving their overall health and fitness through a Senior Wellness Program.
This free program is designed to help older adults engage in activities which will positively affect their health, well-being, physical fitness, and health knowledge. Viterbo University nursing students will pair up with participants to provide guidance, encouragement, and support through health promoting activities.
"We’re looking for a number of willing volunteers to participate," said Joyce Heil, a professor of nursing at Viterbo. "The program is exciting because it offers a new approach to total wellness and provides one-on-one coaching and support.
The wellness program which is limited to 58 participants, will be held at two sites. The sessions are:
Mondays, Jan. 21-Feb. 25 or March 18-April 29 from 1-4 p.m. at the Naval Reserve Center, 226 Green Bay Street; Fridays, Jan. 25-March 1 or March 22-May 3 from 8-11 at Viterbo University Student Activity Center.
