Balancing The Odds in Your Favour:  Reduce the Risk, Notice the Symptoms and Take Action

It has been said that the majority of illnesses today are preventable in nature.  There are many things one can do to lower the risk of developing chronic health care conditions.  By focusing on a few key areas, individuals can take steps to decrease the risk of developing heart disease, stroke and diabetes. 

A nurse will review the following program topics with participants:

  • Identify major illnesses
  • Reduce your risk
  • Know the symptoms
  • Find out about community resources

Participants will gain an increased understanding of how their actions directly affect their health.  Employees will learn how to make healthy choices and lower the chances of developing chronic conditions.
