VA to offer weight management classes in Albemarle, Thomasville

Members of the Rural Health Integration program team from the W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury will provide free MOVE! Weight Management classes at the Stanly Commons Conference Room, 1000 N. First St., Albemarle, every Tuesday, July 15-Aug. 12 from 10 a.m. to noon.
The classes will also be offered at the Thomasville Public Library, 14 Randolph St., Thomasville, every Thursday, July 10-Aug. 7, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Join the Rural Health Integration team and fellow veterans to learn how to make healthy lifestyle choices and improve the quality of life. During classes, the team will provide self-management tools needed to help reach and maintain a 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 those veterans possessing 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 who are 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, you can request a copy from http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/.
