Become healthy by choice, not chance

Do you want to eat more and weigh less while improving your blood pressure, cholesterol and heart health? If so, plan to attend a free information session to learn about the Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP).

The 30-minute session will be offered twice: Monday, Feb. 17, and Tuesday, Feb. 18, beginning at 6 p.m. It will take place at the Seventh-day Adventist Church Social Hall, 2335 NE 22nd St., Lincoln City. Pick the date that works best for you, and register to save your seat.

Presented by physicians, volunteer staff from Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital and members of the SDA Church, CHIP is a simple 30-day lifestyle education program. It helps participants discover ways to take charge of their health with safe, simple and deliberate lifestyle choices.

The program begins with a comprehensive health screening on Friday, Feb. 21, followed by evening meetings on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for five weeks ending April 2. Each meeting includes discussion and videos on topics including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, stroke, depression, diet and exercise along with a delicious meal prepared by the group leaders.

Tuition is charged for the CHIP sessions, with discounts available for accompanying spouses or friends. Some individuals may qualify for a scholarship. For complete information and to register plan to attend one of the information sessions, or email Bobbi Ordelheide at [email protected], or leave a message at 541-992-3856.
