DIABETES SELF MANAGEMENT
Have you been told you have “borderline” or prediabetes?  Have you had diabetes for years and need a refresher on self-care skills?  Is your blood glucose higher than you’d like it to be?  This 90 minute class will help you understand diabetes and adjust your lifestyle to get your blood glucose under control.  Emphasis is placed on healthy meal planning for yourself and your family.  Spouses and family members are encouraged to attend.  Classes are held monthly.  
HEART HEALTH
Do you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure?  Adopting healthy eating habits can greatly improve your heart health.  Our Registered Dietitian offers a 90 minute class each month that will provide you with a heart healthy meal plan. 
WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Are you happy with your weight?  Do you eat balanced meals?  Fad diets usually work for a short time.  A diet high in processed and convenience foods often results in unwanted weight.  Learn healthy eating habits that will help you feel and look your best!  The Wellness Clinic’s Registered Dietitian holds a 90 minute class twice a month. 
PREGNANCY NUTRITION  
Did you know both men and women need to take folic acid before pregnancy?  Parents-to-be can get the recommended daily 400 to 600 mcg of folic acid by taking a multivitamin and eating dark leafy vegetables, peas and beans, and fortified cereals. The Pregnancy Nutrition Group Class provides great tips like this for expecting parents.
SHIP SHAPE
This course is the Navy-approved intensive weight management series designed to help military personnel meet body composition standards.  The course consists of one 60-minute-session per week for eight weeks.  Although the target audience is active duty service members, it is open to all TRICARE beneficiaries and DoD staff.  Active duty members need authorization from their commands to attend.  Wellness can assist with this process.  
LUNCH & LEARN
Join us for this half-hour, lunch-time seminar. Topics change monthly.
TOBACCO CESSATION
Are there any GOOD reasons to stay addicted to nicotine?  Meet with a tobacco cessation counselor for individual or group counseling sessions.  Learn to replace tobacco use with healthier activities.  Cessation medications can be obtained at no cost for in-house patients through the NHCC pharmacy and for network patients through Home Delivery.
