Are Virtual Health Classes Right for You?Health Hub
As modern healthcare continues to undergo changes, it’s important to remember that online learning and virtual classrooms are nothing new. They offer plenty of convenient options that take advantage of all our coolest technology—phones, tablets, and computers that we can access anywhere at any time.
Patients use online platforms for personalized, one-on-one interactions with their doctors, but they can also use them to join groups of like-minded people in fun activities such as yoga, healthy cooking demonstrations, family events, stress reduction, and seminars about the latest health trends.
In short, virtual access is changing the wellness game. Now’s the ideal time to find something that helps you stay healthy, empowered and refreshed!
If you have a good WiFi connection, virtual health classes are perfect for you. Plus, who doesn’t need an occasional break from the news?
“The virtual classes are such a great resource for our community and patients to take charge of their health,” said Carrie Bloemers, MS, RDN, LDN, Director of Healthy Life Center - Education & Navigation. “We’re excited that with a little innovation and technology, we can continue education in a safe setting throughout the summer.”

Cooking Camps and Demonstrations
It’s especially easy these days to fall into bad eating habits. We’re all more susceptible to overindulging in comfort foods, snacks, and sugar to cope with stress and social distancing.
But proper nutrition and exercise are still the keys to long-term wellness. Our Healthy Life Centers invite you to learn more about food and nutrition – and have lots of fun while doing it – with our popular Cooking with Kat demonstrations.
In June, Kat, a registered dietitian, will teach you how to make healthy and tasty fish, show you more about mushrooms, and provide instruction on soy-based dishes the whole family will enjoy.
In our virtual cooking camps, the kids can get in on the action, too. These camp classes help children learn a new hobby and give them the kinds of skils that will keep them healthier throughout their life. And, here’s a bonus: The cooking camp may keep them focused and occupied all summer long!
“We would love to have kids and parents working together in the kitchen to build new culinary skills,” Bloemers said. “This helps set the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and works to prevent chronic disease.”
