At OhioHealth, we offer classes that can help you make lifestyle changes to improve your health and reduce your risk for heart disease.  They include:

The program is certified by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). It is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE's), nurses, dietitians, exercise physiologists and a pharmacist.

Stress Management 

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) at Riverside Methodist's Elizabeth Blackwell Center teaches mind-body skills to work effectively with the general stressors of life.
