Team members in UM Shore Regional Health’s Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services are offering a series of classes for UM SRH team members, volunteers and the public.
“Our theme this year in Rehab has been ‘Live Your Best Life’ and of course, movement and exercise are so important to maintaining good health,” explains Diane Lorsong, speech therapist for Rehab Services. “So, leading up to National Rehabilitation Week, September 15 -20, we are offering one-time, beginner-level classes that will introduce people to various kinds of physical activity that might be interested in but haven’t tried.”
The Rehab Services team is suggesting donations (by cash or check) as follows: $8 for UM SRH staff and volunteers with badge i.d., and $10 for all others. All donations will be deposited in the Rehab Services fund at UM Memorial Hospital Foundation, which provides support for continuing education for Rehab Services staff members.
Anyone interested in ‘living their best life’ and trying something new is encouraged to try one or more of these fun filled classes. All classes will be held 5 – 5:30 p.m. in the Health Education Center at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton. The class series begins the last week of August and will unfold as follows:
YOGA WITH REN – Wednesday, August 28. Instructor Ren Boettger is a physical therapy assistant for SRH Rehab Services and teaches Pilates and Yoga at various locations on the Mid-shore.
