Healthier Together

Janice Marks attends all of the Healthier Together classes at Cox North.

"My family medicine physician, Dr. Halverson, encouraged me to take these monthly classes," she says. "I went and have gone to every class since."

The class focuses on living with and coping with chronic pain, depression and diabetes, which all affect Marks.

"During each class the instructors give us tips on nutrition, exercise, sleep, relationships, stress and habits," says Marks, a Springfield resident. "For example during one class they showed us how to exercise in a chair if you are unable to get up, because many of us in the class have bad backs."

She says the support from others helps. "During class we share tips and encourage each other."
