The Orleans Community Health Foundation, in collaboration with Community Partners, is promoting healthier lifestyles through its Healthier U program. An Open House was held at The Village Inn in Childs to launch the first of a series of events that will be held throughout the year.
Since 1990, the Healthier ‘U’ program has been a valuable community asset helping to enhance the lives of individuals. In 2015 Healthier ‘U’ membership benefits will reflect a stronger focus on community health education, while still offering discounts for using services at Medina Memorial Hospital. This enhancement will benefit the collaborative relationship between the Foundation, Orleans Community Health and community members. Monthly small group sessions will be held on select healthcare topics such as cancer education, cooking classes, diabetes, heart health, nutrition, osteoporosis and more! These educational sessions will be conducted at locations throughout Orleans County. Several discounts at Medina Memorial Hospital will continue, such as a free upgrade to a private room as available, free health screenings, employee prices in the hospital cafeteria and Gift Shop discounts. The program offers both individual and family membership .
