VA providing free weight management classes for veterans

Members of the Rural Health Integration program team from the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center will provide free MOVE! Weight Management classes at the American Legion Post 66, 1450 North Main St. in Mooresville, from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays March 5 through April 2.
During classes, participants will learn self-management tools to reach and maintain their goal weight. Veterans can take part in five weekly group sessions that emphasize nutrition, behavior modification, exercise and choosing a support system. Those who meet their weekly goal will receive a prize.
The classes are open to all veterans currently using VA health care and to veterans with a DD-214 and a valid photo ID.
VA staff will also provide health care registration, education and information services to all non-registered veterans and assistance in completing enrollment applications, requesting copies of DD Form 214s, and initiating MyHealtheVet online services.
Former military members not currently enrolled for VA health care benefits will need to bring a copy of their DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty to attach to their application for VA health care benefits. Veterans who have lost their DD Form 214 can request a copy from www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/.
For more information, call 1-800-469-8262, extension 4958, 4960, 4937 or 4315.
