Lake Region Healthcare’s (LRH) Living Well Series for April will feature the topic “Lifestyle Medicine: A Better Way to Treat and Prevent Illness” at 5:45pm on Monday April 9th, 2018 in the Fergus Falls Clinic Main lobby.
“LRH has had this program in place for about four years already and we are really
on the forefront of this lifestyle medicine movement,” said LRH Director of Wellness, Natalie Knutson. “We are excited to share more about the use of lifestyle and other non-drug modalities to prevent, treat and reverse lifestyle-related chronic disease,” she said.
Two LRH fitness professionals, Natalie Knutson and Karoline Gustafson, will speak about what Lifestyle Medicine is and how they are working with physicians and advanced practice professionals at LRH to refer patients and implement the program. Two patients, Rod Scheel and Sue Balkan, will share their personal experience with the program.
