A new program is coming to several area hospitals to help the community work on their health and wellness through fun activities. Go217 is hoping to keep everyone moving and improve the overall health of everyone in the 217 area code. HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital and the Shelby County Senior Center will be offering the classes each month, and focus on a dance workout.
Tonya Bowrey, Manager of Rehabilitation Services and the Wellness for Life Program discussed the focus of Go217.
Bowrey said the Go217 program fit with what HSHS Good Shepherd hospital’s rehabilitation department works to do with patients, and shared what the Shelbyville classes will be all about.
The classes are free to attend, and are welcome to everybody. The first class and sign-up event will be held Thursday, March 2nd at the Shelby County Senior Center starting at 7.
