We’ve been busy at the Body and Wellness Program! We’ve pivoted into Zoom-based group meetings for orientations and nutrition classes, and these are going great. People have really enjoyed the efficiency and flexibility of the classes. There really are a few COVID-19 “blessings” which have forced us into uncharted territory and thereby pushed us into innovative approaches to help our patients achieve their goals, even in a virtual community.
Please update your calendar with the following events. You can schedule by contacting Rhiannon by phone 410-552-5050, ext 134.
Nutrition/Fitness Topics via Zoom are Shared Medical Appointments (SMAs). These are insurance-covered group medical visits with your peers and led by one of our Body and Wellness practitioners.

- November 9th, 5:45pm to 7pm – “Clean Eating – What Does That Mean?” with Crystal Leanard, CRNP
*NEW* Offering of Diabetic Education via Zoom with Kristen Allard, CRNP. Like SMAs, for pre-diabetic or diabetic patients, these insurance-covered meetings provide support and education on the topic of managing sugars/carbohydrates and specific guidance with medications used to treat diabetes. Each month, there will be a different relevant topic so that you can do ALL of them or jump in to just one.
