VA weight loss program coming to Granite Quarry

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 Granite Quarry Legion Building, 300 Legion St., Granite Quarry, every Wednesday, July 23 through Aug. 20, from 10 a.m. to noon.
Join the Rural Health Integration team and your fellow veterans to learn how to make healthy lifestyle choices and improve the quality of your life. During classes, the team will provide you with self-management tools needed to help you reach and maintain your 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 healthcare 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/.
For more information, call 1-800-469-8262, ext. 4958/4960/4937/4315. VA outreach activities are posted on the events calendar at http://www.salisbury.va.gov/calendar.asp.
