LA CROSSE, Wis.—The Viterbo University School of Nursing is looking for volunteers aged 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 provided one-on-one coaching and support."

The wellness program is held at two sites.  Each session will be five weeks in length. The sessions are:

  • Mondays, Jan. 26-Feb. 23, or March 15-April 19, from 1-4 p.m. at the Naval Reserve Center, 2226 Green Bay Street.
  • Fridays, Jan. 30-Feb. 27, or March 19-April 23, from 8-11 a.m. at the Viterbo University Student Activity Center.

For further information or to sign up, please call Joyce Heil at (608) 796-3695 or email
