Southern Nazarene University has received a faith based grant from Central Oklahoma Turning Point under the Oklahoma County Health Department. The grant, Healthy Choices, is an active effort to provide a health/wellness seminar and summer activity/exercise opportunities for the community.

There will be a health symposium on Thursday, May 17th at 6:30 pm in the Bethany Elementary cafeteria located at 6721 NW 42nd Street. The symposium will offer classes for both adults and children interested in healthy lifestyles. The evening program will emphasize seven breakout sessions on contemporary health issues. Participants can select classes of interest that include the following: healthy snacks, fitness activities, water safety, tobacco dangers, aerobic exercise class, safety education, and drug trends; what every parent needs to know.

Registration will also be open for summer enrollment in water aerobics, lap swimming, pedometer walking program, and aerobic classes. Children must be accompanied by an adult to enroll in the exercise program. Fitness testing will be available upon request and administered on the first night of activity classes.

The health forum and all activity classes are free to the public. Space is limited and attendance for the May 17th registration for summer classes is recommended.
