BodyWorks program set for March 27

February 27, 2012

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A new session of BodyWorks, a program for parents and caregivers of boys and girls ages 9 to 14, begins March 27. The eight-week program focuses on helping families create healthier lifestyles.

The BodyWorks Program emphasizes parents as role models and provides them with the tools and support they need to create healthy lifestyles with their children. It is being offered locally as a collaborative effort of West Virginia University Hospitals-East, the Berkeley County Health Department, WVU Extension and Shenandoah Community Health.

Families who enroll in the BodyWorks Program will receive a BodyWorks toolkit and will attend regular group meetings to help maintain behavior change.  The toolkit includes a video on healthy shopping and cooking strategies, a recipe book, food and fitness journals, a weekly meal planner refrigerator magnet and more.

Classes are from 6:15 to 8 p.m. at Destiny Baptist Church, 115 N. Raleigh St. in Martinsburg. Families will also be required to attend a follow-up session eight weeks after completion of the program. There is no fee for the program, but registration is limited.

For more information or to register, contact Dana DeJarnett at 304-264-1287, ext. 1814, ddejarnett@cityhospital.org or Denise Ryan at 304-267-7130 or denise.m.ryan@wv.gov.
