'Healthy You' Fitness Showcase Scheduled for April 17

On Thursday, April 17, Humboldt General Hospital will present the next installment of its 2014 "Healthy Year, Healthy You" seminar series.

"Humboldt County Health and Fitness Showcase" will take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the hospital's Sonoma Conference Room. There is no charge to attend and lunch will be served.

Humboldt General Hospital Wellness Coordinator Louis Mendiola will facilitate the hour-long discussion, which will feature health and fitness experts from throughout Humboldt County.

"We want to give these experts a chance to share what resources they have available to help local residents get fit and healthy," said Mendiola.

He noted that sometimes local residents equate small town with a lack of resources.

"And that's just not the case here," he said. "We have some great folks, great programs, great classes and they are all designed to help us achieve optimum health and wellness."

April's seminar continues a year-long series of "Healthy Year, Healthy You" presentations aimed at helping local residents achieve a greater state of wellness.

All presentations are held from noon to 1 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. There is never a charge to attend and lunch is always served.

For more information on the "Healthy Year, Healthy You" presentation scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, April 17, please call Humboldt General Hospital Wellness Coordinator Louis Mendiola at (775) 623-5222, ext. 1740. Pre-registration is not required.
