SOMC believes a lifetime of wellness begins with our youth. Partnering with the Sports Motion Athletic Trainers/ Wellness Coaches, we have developed health information aimed at school age children. Upon request, members from the Community Health team can provide information and/or presentations focused on eating right, moving more, and tobacco prevention. Our Mission: Nutrition, Rethink Your Drink, and iDon’t.iWon’t visuals and material will provide eye opening evidence of what unhealthy habits can do to our bodies.
Members of the Community Health team can provide a mindfulness presentation that can help bring awareness to your life. The program is filled with information to help with stress management, coping mechanisms, ways to use mindfulness, and self-care techniques. Please call 740.356.2552 for more information.
Healthy Habits is a course offered by SOMC to help our community members adopt healthy life-style changes. This comprehensive program focuses on nutrition, physical activity, stress management, mindfulness, and more. Each session is conducted as a mini-support group and participants share ideas surrounding the weekly topic. The program helps adults achieve and maintain healthy lifestyle choices through educational materials, engaging onsite sessions, and group support at the worksite and other places throughout the community. For more information, please contact Community Health at 740.356.2552.
