Do you want to live healthier, but don't know where to start? Join our Healthy Living Support Group for nutrition tips, speakers, support from peers, and lots more. Beginning in April, we will be starting another six month session, where we discuss goals, health concerns, nutrition, nutritional supplements, relaxation, exercise and living green. We based our first six month program on Dr. Mark Hyman's Book, The Blood Sugar Solution. Each month the group dynamics was inspiring. We had vibrant interaction from our group and the speakers. Many of our members shared success stories of feeling better, losing weight, sleeping better and improved blood sugar levels.
We hold the meetings in the empty office space, located next door to Granby Pharmacy. It has provided adequate and private space for our group, to display products and resources. This group is open to anyone who may be interested in improving their health and knowledge. During the first session we had a multi-generational group all with different health concerns ranging from allergies, blood sugar, general health, heart, arthritis, and immunity.
Each month, our staff, Jean Keating, Pharm D, Mary Keating, Manager/Owner, and Beth Galloway, Manager, led and organized our meetings. Our speakers included Elizabeth DiMeo, MS, CNS, LDN of Metagenics, Alicia Newton of the Farmington Valley YMCA, Lori Love of Granby Village Health, Linda Pollack of Back In Touch Wellness Center, Ginger Harris of Sustainable Health and Wellness Center, and Sheryl Sheridan, Independent Team Beachbody Coach.
Each month we displayed products relevant to the topic and had sample food recipes. We promoted local events like farmers markets and local businesses that promote health. Our members contributed to our resources, by sharing books, website, etc that worked for them to learn more about health topics.
Please join us on the second Thursday of each month, beginning April 10, 2014 at 1:00 PM. We also send out periodic emails to support the group with recipes, summaries of meetings, and other topics. If you cannot join our group each month, join our email group. We have many resources listed on our website www.granbypharmacy.com.
