Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Offers Spring Wellness Workshop Small Steps to Health and Wealth

Cape May Court House, NJ – Learn how taking small steps can be the key to health and wealth at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Family and Community Health Sciences (FCHS) workshop, “Small Steps to Health and Wealth,” on Thursday, March 22, 2018. The program, originally scheduled for February 8th, is part of an on-going Wellness Series offered by FCHS. The class will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 355 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, New Jersey.

Health and personal finance issues affect millions of Americans. Major societal problems that have been reported in recent years include an increasing incidence of diabetes, more overweight adults and children, low household savings rates, and high household debt.

Marilou Rochford, FCHS Educator, said, “Research shows that because of this, most Americans resolve each year to get healthier and save more. The approach of taking small steps can be an effective way to achieve health, wellness, and finance goals.”

Participants at the Small Steps to Health and Wealth workshop will learn how to take action to improve their health and personal finances, that anything they do to improve their health and or accumulate wealth is a step in the right direction, how small amounts of savings and small dietary changes can have a powerful effect over time, and that no step is too small to get started.

A lite supper will be served. The cost of the workshop is $15 and advanced registration is required by March 16th. Space is limited, so, please reserve your place early. Please call Marian at (609) 465-5115, ext. 3609 or email for more information or to register for the program.
