VOLUNTEERS 60 AND OLDER NEEDED FOR VITERBO WELLNESS PROGRAM
LA CROSSE, Wis.—The Viterbo University School of Nursing is looking for volunteers 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 that 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 promotion 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 will be held at two sites. Each session will be five weeks in length. The sessions are:
- Mondays, Jan. 27-Feb. 24 or March 24-April 28, from 1-4 p.m. at the Naval Reserve Center, 226 Green Bay Street.
- Wednesdays, Jan. 29-Feb. 26 or March 26-April 30, at the Naval Reserve Center, 226 Green Bay Street.
- Fridays, Jan. 31-Feb. 28 or March 28- May 2, from 8-11 a.m. at the Viterbo University Student Activity Center on Ninth Street between Mississippi and Winnebago streets.
