Community partnership gives community MOMS a chance for better life

Published 5:21 pm Thursday, April 4, 2013

Tryon Seventh-day Adventist Church has developed a new concept for local moms to improve their overall health and well-being by participating in the Changing Lives MOMS Group program.

The Changing Lives MOMS Group begins with a free, personalized body composition screening and basic health indicators report for participants. The screening results will provide moms with the information they need to begin the process of transforming their lives. The pilot continues with four weekly sessions designed to arm moms with practical tips in the areas of fitness, nutrition and outlook.

While moms learn to improve their health, children ages 12 months and up will engage in age appropriate activities designed around the same learning concepts that mom hears.
