In today’s world, information plays a key role in staying healthy. With that in mind, Aurora Health Care and St. Francis De Sales Church in Lake Geneva are partnering on a free program featuring the latest information on heart health; breast health and technology; exercise and injury; stress; and aromatherapy.
Make plans today to attend the second annual Harvest for Healthy Living, 8 a.m.-noon, Saturday, Oct. 20, at St. Francis De Sales, 148 Main St., Lake Geneva. There will also be door prizes from local businesses. To register, please call (800) 499-5736 or visit www.Aurora.org/Harvest.
Maureen Redmer, registered nurse and parish nurse, said the goal of the program is to bring together health experts in one location. Redmer serves as the parish nurse for St. Francis De Sales. She said the parish’s Wellness Committee, which highlights the importance of health and wellness among the congregation, played an integral role in putting the program together.
“Our committee is an awesome group,” she said in a news release. “We’re pleased to be able to once again present this program,’’ she said. “There is so much health-related information out there it’s sometimes overwhelming. These health-care professionals know the latest trends. It should be an informative and interesting session.’’
