Health 360 is a comprehensive wellness program that brings seniors together to improve their health and quality of life. This program was designed to help seniors address preventable illnesses (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, and obesity) through an interactive curriculum. Over the course of 10 weeks, participants learn healthy eating habits, home-gardening skills, and strategies for staying physically active.  Guided by Chef Tracy, the Health 360 seniors prepare a meal and discuss healthy cooking techniques, the fundamentals of label reading and healthy shopping, how to make delicious and healthful meals, and the benefits of regular exercise.  A typical class may include light exercise and stretching, lessons in gardening and nutrition, healthy recipe cooking demonstrations, as well as distribution of fresh produce to encourage seniors to eat more healthfully, putting what they have learned in class into practice.
