Hospital To Host Program on 'Battling the Middle Age Spread'

On Thursday, May 15, 2014 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., Wood County Hospital will present the program 'Battling the Middle Age Spread,' as part of its Positively Pink Women's Health program series. The free program will take place in the hospital meeting rooms.

Every year, it seems the needle on the scale is a little harder to budge. You cut back on portion sizes, you say "no" to desserts, you join the gym, and your your jean size goes up and your energy level goes down. Battling the Middle Age Spread can sometimes feel like a losing battle. But it doesn't have to be.

Carolyn Tienarend, a licensed dietitian will discuss "Nutrition for Women Over 40." She will explain our ever-changing nutritional needs as we age, and will review food labels to help women better assess if what they are eating is healthy and nutritional.

Family Practice physician, Nicholas Espinoza, D.O. will be explain why the spread across the middle happens as we age, and what we can do to prevent or lessen the effects as we begin to experience the pre-menopause years and beyond.

There will also be free samples, health and fitness information, relaxation demonstrations, free health screenings, refreshments, door prizes, and special vendors!

Join us for a Positively Pink evening and get the answers you need to live a safe, healthy, and happy life.
