Enrollment is now open for a new session of Healthy U, a free program to
help individuals live successfully with a chronic illness. Caregivers
are also welcome to attend. Developed by researchers at Stanford University,
the program presents practical tips, suggestions, and strategies to manage
conditions such as fatigue, pain, disease, disability, and more.
The six-week program takes place on Tuesdays, 1:00-3:30 pm, March 5 through
April 9 at the Senior Center of Jackson Hole. The class is facilitated
by St. John's Medical Center certified wellness coaches Lisa Smith,
RD, a registered dietitian; and Natalie Stewart, RN, BSN, a board-certified
According to a previous participant, “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.
Enroll by March 1 by calling the Senior Center at 307.733.7300.
Healthy U is offered through a grant from the University of Wyoming in
collaboration with the Wyoming Center on Aging.
