St. John’s Medical Center is offering a new session of Healthy U,
a program for people with chronic conditions. Designed by Stanford University,
the class presents practical tips, suggestions, and strategies to manage
conditions such as fatigue, pain, disease, disability, and more.
The six-week program takes place on Thursdays from 6 to 8:30 pm, beginning
April 14 and running through May 19. It is facilitated by St. John's
certified wellness coaches Lisa Smith, a registered dietitian, and Natalie
Stewart, a board-certified registered nurse.
According to a participant from the last session, “(Healthy U) taught
me to make an action plan for my life. In making this commitment, I have
lost 15 pounds, and learned how to eat and sleep better. Without participating
in Healthy U, I never would have accomplished that.”
Classes are highly participatory, with mutual support and success building
the participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health
and maintain active and fulfilling lives.

Healthy U is offered through a grant from the University of Wyoming in
collaboration with the Wyoming Center on Aging.
