Free weight-management sessions offered online

Workshops offer safe, effective strategies to form positive food relationships

Local residents are invited to learn about improving eating habits and forming healthy relationships with food by attending an Alberta Health Services (AHS) weight-management program online.

The program, open to residents 18 years of age and older, is an online version of AHS’ weight-management workshops, which are offered regularly in communities across Central Zone.

The workshops are offered online in order to follow public health guidelines on physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Managing Emotional Eating is a free, three-part workshop led by AHS health professionals who share their expertise and guide interactive group sessions. Participants will learn how eating habits are formed, and how triggers such as emotions, situations and events can be managed to help develop better eating habits that will last a lifetime.

– July 6th, 13th and 20th from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
