Ways to weigh no more
U-M Women’s Health Program sponsoring free seminar on weight management

ANN ARBOR, Mich.Have you been cheating on your New Year’s Resolution? Trying to lose those last five pounds before your vacation? February is a time when many people have a hard time sticking to the weight-loss goals they made in the beginning of the year. But don’t worry; a women’s health seminar sponsored by the University of Michigan Women’s Health Program can help those people struggling to manage their weight.

The lecture, “Ways to Weigh No More,” will be given by Holly Scherer, Registered Dietitian, with U-M's MFit Nutrition Initiatives.  She will discuss ways to easily implement weight management strategies used by more than 3,000 people who have successfully lost weight and kept it off.

U-M Women’s Health Program is designed to help women and their families become healthy and stay healthy at all stages of life, and this seminar is just one of the many resources they provide, including classes on everything from abuse prevention to breast feeding support.

The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will take place Monday, February 12th, at the Washtenaw County Library Learning Resource Center from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The center is located at 4135 Washtenaw Ave., on the corner of Washtenaw and Hogback Road. Seating is limited and registration is encouraged. Refreshments will be provided.
