champions for health physicians improving health changing livesChampions for Health (CFH), a local health nonprofit, is offering virtual health and wellness classes in English and Spanish starting June 3. The classes cover various topics, including a COVID-19 update, healthy cooking, women’s health, childhood health, chair yoga, and diabetes.

“Even as some restrictions are beginning to ease, adults — especially those with chronic conditions — may still choose to avoid places with groups of people. Online programs can help people stay physically and mentally active during the COVID-19 pandemic," said Adama Dyoniziak, executive director of Champions for Health. “By offering the programs online, we can help this often-underserved population stay healthy.”

The virtual community health and wellness program is a free program to help community residents better understand their health. Classes are delivered by volunteer medical professionals, including doctors and nurses, who are subject matter experts.
